Road to Nowhere

Synopsis: There's a murky tenuous balance between reality and fiction; particularly when it involves a beautiful young woman, murder, a powerful politico, a missing fortune and suicide. A passionate filmmaker creating a film based upon a true crime casts an unknown mysterious young woman bearing a disturbing resemblance to the femme fatale in the story. Unsuspectingly, he finds himself drawn into a complex web of haunting intrigue, obsessed with the woman, the crime, her possibly notorious past and the disturbing complexity between art and truth. From the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina to Verona, Rome and London, new truths are revealed and clues to other crimes and passions, darker and even more complex are uncovered.

Velma was always

my window...

into the story.

# Come and lay down by my side #

# Till the early mornin' light #

# All I'm takin' #

# Is your time #

# Help me make it

through the night #

# I don't care what's right or wrong #

# And I won't try to understand #

# Let the devil take tomorrow #

# Lord, tonight #

# I need a friend #

# Yesterday is dead and gone #

# And tomorrow's out of sight #

# And it's sad to be alone #

# Help me make it

through the night #

# And it's sad to be alone #

# Help me make it

through the night #

# I don't want to be alone #

# Help me make it

through the night ##

Angel One, clear.

Unit 14, clear.

Unit 2-8's

at Third and Western.

I had a 1488,

number 3.

## [ Folk Guitar ]

# Well, the ditches are on fire #

# And there ain't

no higher ground #

# You've set your sights

on the City of Angels #

# But you're stuck

makin' bad deals in #

# Backwater towns #

# Forgiveness is

the killer of snakes, friend #

# In the gardens

of despair#

# Keep your mind

on the middle, brother#

# Out on that road

to nowhere #

# From the polo club

in old Havana #

# To an ancient church

in Rome #

# You keep thinking

you recognize those faces #

# The way the flesh

is tightened on the bone #

# You make deals with

the wrong class of people #

# You balance

the curse and the prayer#

# On that thin line

between the pathway to glory #

# And the road

that leads to nowhere #

# So row, row, row

your little dreamboat #

# Violently back upstream #

# Where the cops

and the candlestick makers #

# They're wise to all

your desperate schemes #

# You're riding backwards

on a blind horse #

# On a carousel

in a carnival out there #

# Where the tunnel of love

was never finished #

# Out on the road to nowhere #

# So it's ashes to ashes #

# Dirt to dirt #

# Your blood's full of OxyContin

and vodka, friend #

# Why the hell

do you still hurt? #

# Now every day

is the day of reckoning #

# Even the weatherman

can make you scared #

# Even Lazarus

keeps on staggering down #

# That eternal road #

# To nowhere #

# So row, row, row

your little dreamboat #

# Violently back upstream #

# Where the banker

and the cops #

# And the candlestick makers #

# They're all wise

to your desperate schemes #

# You're riding backwards

on a blind horse #

# In some carnival out there #

# Where the tunnel of love

was never finished #

# On the road to nowhere #

# Tunnel of love

was never finished #

# On the road to nowhere ##

In your film,

Road to Nowhere,

Velma dies after Taschen

has taken his own life.

But there are

conflicting reports about that.

What you're really asking is if...

I think I'm printing the truth...

or legend.

So we agree.

I think we always did.

It was your story

before it was mine.

Nathalie Post?

Hi.

Hi. You seem

like you're the, uh,

belle of

the Bryson County ball tonight.

That's always been my dream.

May I please

have a martini?

Bruno.

Hi.

Bruno Brotherton.

It must be pretty exciting selling your

story to a big Hollywood movie and all.

However in the world did you come up

with that idea to write about?

Well, I was sitting at my computer

one day and thinking,

if I don't get out of Bryson City,

I'm gonna drive my car into Fontana Lake.

And then Velma Duran

went and did it.

You mean you'd rather write

than procreate like the rest of us hillbillies?

What do you do, Mr. Brotherton?

Nothing as exciting as you, I'm sure.

Actually, uh

I-I'm a researcher

for Universal Benefit Systems.

You're

an insurance investigator.

You make it sound like
