‘Palm Trees and Power Lines’ Director Jamie Dack and Stars Lily McInerny and Jonathan Tucker on Their Realistic Cautionary Tale

Without getting into the specifics of the story, the film takes an unvarnished and realistic look at how a lonely teenager can be drawn into an inappropriate relationship.
