Turnipseed: Legacy (2014)
19min · Short, Biography, Drama · 1 January 2014
Lawrence Gilliard, Jr. once again stars as John Turnipseed in the 3rd and final film of the Turnipseed trilogy. Torn from an idyllic life with a loving extended family in 1960's Alabama, young Johnny Turnipseed found himself in Minnesota with a father he no longer recognized, and empty cupboards. AB Turnipseed's alcoholism started a chain reaction of poverty, violence, addiction and despair that nearly destroyed three generations. From lost and frightened little boy, to gang leader, drug dealer and pimp, to one of the nation's most respected pioneers of community restoration, this is a story of transformation and restoration told with honesty, and contagious hope.
