The film is about a convict, abandoned by his ex-wife and prevented from seeing his young daughter; as a parolee he develops a relationship with a lonely and troubled woman, whom he saves from a violent attack, killing the assailant in the process. Once more on the run, he is forced to re-evaluate his freedom as he evades the law and faces demons from his past; the film was shot on location in various small towns in southern Illinois: Alton, Wood River, East Alton, Jerseyville. Produced by James Choi, Brian Jun, Max Velez for 40/West, the film premiered on April 29, 2011 at the Newport Beach Film Festival. While doing time in prison for a violent offense, Nick Burke is visited by his wife who informs him that after waiting for seven years, she is divorcing him and has taken out a restraining order against him to prevent him from seeing their daughter. Sometime after accepting the parole board's condition that he relinquish all custodial rights of his daughter, he is given his freedom.

Now in his mid-forties and determined to start a new life, Nick tries to find his way back into society and move beyond his violent criminal past. He meets with his parole officer, finds a small motel room, attends an AA meeting. Nick's younger brother Dean visits him at the motel and describes his life as a newlywed and police officer, having just graduated from the police academy. Although their relationship seems strained, Nick still looks to connect with his brother though he never visited him in prison. Before leaving, Dean gives his older brother a gun for protection. Nick soon finds work at a manufacturing plant. At the motel, Nick meets a lonely and troubled stripper named Michelle Page, whose isolated life is interrupted by the deaths of her elderly neighbors. Nick asks his attractive neighbor out for coffee, the two begin to share their stories with each other. One morning, Michelle's former acquaintance Danny Wilson, whom she hasn't seen in three years, shows up after his three-year tour of duty in Afghanistan, expecting to rekindle their relationship.

Michelle hardly knows this man. When Michelle rejects his advances and his demands for a personal reward for his service to his country, he sticks a gun in her face and brutally rapes her in her room. Hearing the commotion, Nick runs to her room with his brother's gun in hand. In the confrontation, both men are shot — Danny is mortally wounded. In the coming days, Michelle visits Nick in the hospital as he recovers from his gunshot wound to the stomach; when he learns that Danny died from his wounds, knowing that he violated his parole and would be sent back to prison—no matter how good his intentions in stopping the attack, Nick leaves the hospital with Michelle's help, the two drive to the home of Nick's brother Dean and his pregnant wife. There they get a glimpse of a domestic life they have never known; the relationship between the two brothers remains strained, yet Nick reaches out to make some familial connection with Dean, whose only advice is to "disappear". The next morning and Michelle leave in Nick's old truck, knowing they have become outlaws on the run.

They find solace in each other's arms that night in a motel. Soon after, police detectives arrive at Dean's house with the gun he gave his brother. Convinced that Michelle gave the gun to police, when Nick calls, Dean tells him that she betrayed him. Nick confronts Michelle about the gun, she swears she did not give it to the police — that they must have discovered where she had hidden the weapon; that night they have sex. In the morning, Michelle discovers that Nick has abandoned her for her own protection. Back at her motel, Michelle is arrested by the police and she is taken to jail. Meanwhile, Nick drives to his daughter's school and meets one of her teachers, who tells him she is doing fine. After school, he observes his daughter leaving with her friends. Sometime on a quiet deserted lake, Nick floats across the water in his old boat.

The soundtrack included written and performed by Alicia Witt. In his review in Cranes Are Flying, Robert Kennedy wrote that Pellegrino and Witt are "both excellent", but that the film suffered from the director's script, "abysmally weak". Kennedy went on to write: The narrative couldn't be more hackneyed and stereotypical, where there's no investment whatsoever in a unique idea or vision, where the audience is rather appalled at the choices the characters make, as they appear to be smarter than that. It's a waste of good performances. Joint Body was released on DVD on July 24, 2012. Joint Body on IMDb Joint Body at Rotten Tomatoes Joint Body at AllMovie
