This inspirational story brings the audience into the characters struggles and triumphs in what they endure and overcome in the name of faith, family, freedom and home.
"Adventures of a Farmboy and His Dog Caught Up in the American Struggle for Independence. A Journey of Faith, Family, Freedom and Home."
Logline - An impossible adventure begins when a young farm boy sneaks out of George Washington’s encampment to find his father, a soldier who does not return from the 1778 Battle of Monmouth. Will the game of draughts save the young boy’s life and get him home?
