North Carolina 1863, the Civil War is raging. In this inspired story of tragedy and love we follow the lives of Melody, a precocious seven-year old, and her young mother Sarah as they struggle on their farm to survive during the Civil War.
It is an American Civil War movie about a woman from North Carolina ( Sarabeth Ellis ) whose husband has joined the army of Confederate States of America. While her husband is away in war, a creepy neighbor is molesting her, and her daughter. In the skirmish on the family's farm, her husband got killed, and her daughter found him. She does not tell her mother, that her father is dead from fear that her mother would not take the news to well. They also discover a gravely wounded Union soldier who is using their cellar as hide-out. Together they decide to nurse him back to health and hide him when Confederate soldiers check the house. When the Union soldier recovers, Sarabeth makes sure he reaches his army. Upon his return, he is taken as a spy. Sarabeth runs out of food and the farm is burned to the ground, and she learns that her husband is dead. Yet, she is reunited with the Union soldier, and she decides to start a new life with him and her daughter. Written by
This boring uneventful film I have to say I left the TV after watching it for about a half hour. My husband was dozing in the chair so I don't know if he actually "watched it" He likes civil war films but he was sorry to have had to pay the rent price on this one. I thought the acting was horrible and appeared child like more like a play one would see at school on a stage. Never heard of the actors or actresses either RED FLAG on that one. Do some research on films before you rent them. This is a boring and long and disastrous movie. I would not recommend anyone to watch it. It is going back to the video rental store as one of the worst movies I have ever rented.
