          Freedom is an Americana tale of pure romance, strife, bull riding, alcoholism, deception, heartbreak, survival, and hope. This modern-day western drama adapted from the true story Freedom by Anita Waggoner.


          Some may see this film as the ultimate female character driven film, but it’s much more.


          Cheyenne meets Rowdy, an Oklahoma cowboy in Las Vegas during the National Finals Rodeo and they form an unusual bond filled with complication, joy and tragedy. Their relationship gives testament to the endurance and power of true love.


          Rowdy sees Cheyenne’s wealth a means to keep his ranch and fledgling bucking bull business afloat.

Living on Rowdy’s run-down ranch takes Cheyenne some getting used to, as does the rough and tumble country lifestyle.

          Cheyenne falls for the hard-living cowboy believing it’s her last shot at happiness. The doomed romance somehow inspires her. Eventually, Cheyenne questions everything she’d expected to find in Freedom. In the end, she’s determined to do what she believes she must do to find true happiness.

          Rowdy becomes a broken-down cowboy who's had one too many drinks way too many times. He tries and fails to stop drinking and find salvation while Cheyenne worries that his self-destructive lifestyle will send him to an early grave. Rowdy’s drinking escalates,. His chances of giving up the bottle, become an impossible long shot. 


          "Not everyone who writes gets why Ernest Hemingway or John Steinbeck were such revered authors, but Anita completely understands what makes a good storyteller. I wish she had become an author before her first book in 2010. Then again, all her life experiences were important for her to pen her successful works. A good storyteller must capture the reader on the very first page. She does, and then she goes on to produce a captivating plot with intriguing characters. She creates early on the themes with which she deals consistently and uses direct dialogue to develop her characters and their actions. Her vocabulary portrays vivid descriptions of her surroundings, and she makes the reader feel right there where the action is taking place. Everything she writes about can be visualized. Anita has amazing talent as a writer. She has not only published novels but short stories and books of inspirational quotes and self-help. She has more work out there than what Amazon has listed...a prolific writer in such a short time. She is a woman to be admired!"
