USA | 2013 | 92 Minutes | Chris Eska

April 11 - 18, 2014

Director Chris Eska's beautifully made Civil War drama follows a fatherless boy sent by bounty hunters on a dangerous mission to retrieve a free man. During their journey back to the South, the pair develop unexpected emotional bonds, leading to a gut-wrenching decision. Winner of the SXSW Grand Jury Prize for lead actor Tishuan Scott.

"Equal parts suspenseful road movie, persuasively detailed period drama and emotionally resonant coming-of-age story. An outstanding example of regional indie filmmaking accomplished with limited resources and an abundance of skill." - Joe Leydon, Variety
