Eldon, Iowa. A tiny community in the heartland of America. A new state law bans sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of schools, parks, public libraries, bus stops - anywhere children might gather.
Charged with enforcing the new law, the local Deputy Sheriff is compelled to evict his neighbours' son. Over the course of a single weekend, fear and intolerance swell in the small town. The two men are thrown together to discover the ultimate price that each has to pay for safety.
Anthony Weigh's 2,000 Feet Away had its UK premiere at the Bush Theatre, London, in June 2008.
