The Film

Situated in Montana’s rugged prairie is the town of Rapelje, population 60. The town is home to a grain elevator, post office, and the Stockman Cafe. The Stockman is town’s hub of activity, and the only place in twenty miles to get a bite to eat. With so few residents, however, the town struggles to keep its cafe open. Rapelje is also home to one of the biggest mountain bike races in the region, a 24-hour event started by a group of farmers and ranchers–many whom had never ridden a bicycle in their lives–simply to keep the cafe from closing. This is a story about a town on the brink, and its citizens’ extraordinary efforts to save it.
