HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ The real-life story of a troubled Hutchinson stove restoration business has inspired a film.

The Hutchinson News reports ( ) that several weeks of filming are expected to wrap up by Monday on a feature film called ``Salvation.''

Writer/director Bernie Van De Yacht was among the people who lost money with a man who repaired and restored gas stoves from the 1950s and 1960s.

Complaints started to pile up in 2007 for non-delivery of stoves and refusal to refund down payments. There were also complaints about the quality of the finished stoves.

``Salvation'' producer Danny Rodriguez says the filming brought more than 50 people from Hollywood to Hutchinson. Locals were hired as actors and crew members.

``Salvation'' is expected to be released in 2013.
