Broken Bridges is described as a bittersweet story of former high school sweethearts Bo Price (Keith) and Angela Delton (Kelly Preston) who return home after the deaths of their younger brothers, forcing them to deal with ghosts of the past and their uncertain future. Keith plays a country music singer who has fallen from the spotlight and faces life changes after coming home, reuniting with his true love and meeting his 16-year-old daughter (Haun) for the first time. The film also stars Willie Nelson, Burt Reynolds and Tess Harper.

“Bo is a lot like me but not as hard-edged,” Keith says. “He’s a lot more forgiving. Bo goes through many life changing events that a lot of people face. The film deals with life -­ family, home and many outside elements forcing you to stand up and make decisions and choices.”
