Los Angeles, CA – Described by actor and screenwriter L.M. Kit Carson as “It’s a Wonderful Life meets The Twilight Zone,” the spellbinding thriller, DOONBY, is set to be released on DVD July 22nd by Green Apple Entertainment and Riverhorse Entertainment.  Written and directed by Irish filmmaker Peter Mackenzie, Doonby examines how much one man’s life can affect those around him while answering the larger question of what one life is worth.

Doonby tells the story of Sam Doonby, a mysterious drifter who quickly becomes the talk of the small Texas town. He finds work at Leroy’s Country Blues Bar, where his musical talents make him a local celebrity, attracting the attention of the beautiful but spoiled Laura Reaper. Sam is strangely immune to the misfortunes of others, yet always around to prevent sudden disasters from happening.

Soon the narrow-minded townsfolk become jealous and start to question his background and motives. But, it is Laura’s doubts that cause Sam to vanish, leaving the locals to deal with some difficult admissions. Sam’s abrupt disappearance forces those he left behind to deal with some painful revelations and to question his mysterious arrival and departure.
