Summary

Summary

The third feature from writer/director Chris Eska, The Retrieval tells the story of a 13-year-old boy who works with white bounty hunters to lure runaway slaves back to the South during the Civil War, but who experiences an intense crisis of conscience after forming an unexpected bond with a desperate fugitive. The year is 1864. The Civil War has torn the very threads of America apart. As brother battles brother, orphaned Will survives by betraying his own people for a gang of ruthless white bounty hunters. Tasked with venturing into the North and locating Nate, young Will convinces the freedman that his brother is dying, and wishes to see his sibling one last time. But when Will's mission doesn't go as planned, the pair must rely on their own wits in order to survive. Later, having forged an unexpected friendship with Nate, Will must decide where his loyalties truly lie. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
