The film stars John Ashton as the titular character Uncle John, Alex Moffat as Ben, Jenna Lyng Adams as Kate, Ronnie Gene Blevins as Dutch, and Cynthia Baker as Sally. The movie revolves around two parallel storylines that intersect at various points in the narrative. The first storyline follows Uncle John, a respected member of his rural community in Wisconsin, who is known for his carpentry skills and friendly demeanor. The other storyline focuses on Ben, a young architect from Chicago who has come to Uncle John's town to sell his deceased father's cabin. Ben's father was a former business associate of Uncle John, and the two men had a falling-out years ago for reasons that are not initially clear.

As the story unfolds, we learn more about the characters' past and their motivations. Uncle John has a dark secret that he has been keeping buried for years, and he will go to great lengths to protect it. Meanwhile, Ben becomes infatuated with Kate, a local waitress who is also Uncle John's niece. Kate is in a troubled relationship with her abusive boyfriend Dutch, and Ben tries to intervene to help her.

Uncle John's past catches up with him when an old acquaintance from his shady past shows up in town, looking for revenge. Uncle John is forced to confront his demons and make a difficult decision that will impact his future.

The film moves at a slow pace, allowing for the characters and their relationships to be fully fleshed out. The cinematography captures the beauty of the rural setting, and the soundtrack complements the mood of the story. The acting is superb, especially John Ashton's portrayal of Uncle John as a man conflicted by his past and his present.

Uncle John is a character-driven film that explores themes of regret, redemption, and family ties. It's a compelling drama-thriller that will keep the audience engaged until the very end.
