Director Chris Eska has a history of working with non-professionals, so in searching for someone to play the role of the boy Will, the filmmakers looked extensively at every school within 200 miles of their base in Gonzales, Texas, and auditioned four to five hundred kids locally (at 0:35:50 in the DVD commentary). Regardless, they found Ashton Sanders in "the most boring way possible, which was through a regular casting call" in Los Angeles. Ashton's agent submitted him and he came to at least two callbacks (at 0:48:00 in the DVD 'SAG Foundation Conversations'). See more »
At the very beginning of the movie, as the boy walks toward the cabin, there is a battle - obviously miles away - occurring over the hill.

A young boy struggles with adult dilemma when he is put in a situation where he must choose between his survival and that of a stranger. He comes from and emotionally and physically barren world, treated like chattel, unloved. He accepts his lot because he sees no future for himself. While sent off by a bounty hunter to bring back a gullible freed slave, his sense of morality and kindness is stirred. Will the touch of human kindness by this stranger bring him redemption? No spoilers.
I am surprised that this film has not received a wider audience. I picked it up on line.
