Old Warren Johnson enjoys his solitude and secrets. When a reporter shows up on his doorstep with an old torn photograph, his past wounds open and he is forced to confront the deep dark secrets he thought he buried in the old mining town years ago. As the journalist further investigates, the story unravels revealing Mr. Johnson’s tales of war, death, dreams, and forbidden love. Reliving his past, we fall into a time where certain relationships are still too taboo to whisper about and happiness has an imposed outline for success. Through his stories we see Warren follow his dreams and fight for his heart and country despite the odds against him. After the war, he returns home to find that time doesn’t stand still and life forces people to abandon what they believe in order to survive. As he records Warren’s story, the journalist discovers for himself what honest sacrifice and pure love mean, leaving with much more than his assigned one-thousand-word story.


Running Time: 2 hours 20 minutes with intermission
