Iowa is an indie drama film that is directed by, written by, and stars Matt Farnsworth. It is a tale about two small-town lovers that face struggles with drugs and dealing. Esper Harte (Matt Farnsworth) and Donna Huffman (Diane Foster) are a couple from a small town in Iowa. They lead their boring and dull lives and are anxious to leave that lifestyle. So they begin to deal drugs. Methamphetamine or crystal meth is their drug of choice. They get into the business of cooking it themselves. After some time of selling the drugs, they begin using the drugs themselves, getting high on their own supply. This creates problems leading Esper and Donna down the path of destruction. To escape the issues they have caused, they attempt to run away and hide. Esper's mother (Rosanna Arquette) is determined to track down her son with the help of a local parole officer.

    A story of miserable people leading miserable lives, Iowa is a sour vanity project: trash posing as a socially relevant "cautionary tale."
