Based on the provocative short story 'Jolene: A Life' by celebrated author E. L. Doctorow, director Dan Ireland's film JOLENE follows a beautiful young red-headed Southern girl from ages fifteen to twenty-five, as she navigates her way through bad foster homes and a failed teenage marriage, escapes from a mental institution, and hits the road looking for love and adventure throughout America. During her journey, Jolene is introduced into a series of relationships with men who all desire her, but misfortune usually intervenes as she searches for the life she yearns.
