WHAT MATTERS MOST is a poignant modern-day Romeo & Juliet love story that deeply affects the lives of two divergent families and denizens of a small West Texas border town. A forbidden love and its consequences give way to the uplifting power of trusting yourself and following your heart. For writer/director Jane Cusumano, the process of creating the film and bringing her vision to life also embodied those very same life lessons. Chad Allen, Polly Cusumano, Marshall Teague, Gretchen German, Tamara Clatterbuck, and Jim Metzler star in the Chateau Wally Films production.
