99 CENTS: The Balladeer by Fred Calvert

After years in prison, Bobby Wayner returns to his Kentucky home to discover and face the truth behind his beloved brother’s death.

During World War II in Kentucky, farm boys Bobby and Eldon Wayner are budding balladeers. They become intrigued with a recluse farmer, “Ol’ Weber,” a German immigrant. Many in the community say he’s a Nazi and that he’d murdered his own family.

At night, the boys spy on him and are mesmerized by a beautiful piano tune he plays. Eldon determined to write a ballad about him, takes a risk one fatal night and knocks on his door.

As Bobby hitchhikes and rides the rails with his guitar, his ballads and memories reveal the dark and haunting secret of why he’d run away after his brother died. And when he finally gets home, he finds the past waiting there like Judgment Day.
