New lesbian Midwest set drama Heartland will be released June 6 in the U.S. and Canada via Wolfe Video on DVD and VOD. In the film, a young Oklahoma artist struggling with a recent death finds escape in a reckless affair with her brother's beautiful girlfriend.

Heartland tells the story of Lauren ( Velinda Godfrey ) a beautiful and vibrant woman who moves back home to live with her mom ( Beth Grant ) in Oklahoma after a tragic loss. When Lauren's brother comes home with his attractive yet uptight girlfriend Carrie ( Laura Spencer ) to help launch a local winery, he enlists both women to help. Soon, an attraction between the two women erupts, as Lauren rediscovers her sense of fun and Carrie questions her sexuality.

Featuring genuine and heartfelt performances from the three leads, including acclaimed veteran actress Beth Grant ( co-star of three Academy Award-wining films: The Artist, No Country For Old Men, and Rain Man ), the film features a fresh point of view: iit was written by, produced, and stars Velinda Godfrey, who wanted to tell a story about her midwest hometown ( and who also surprised her Oklahoma classmates by bringing a girl to senior prom ).

HEARTLAND is an emotional coming out story, exploring the blurry lines of sexuality, the limitations of love, and family values in the Midwest.
