Storyline

This movie is a Film Noir reinterpretation of the ancient tragedy by Sophocles written in approximately 441 BC. The backstory, revealed by inference, is that Antigone's brother, an officer in the United States Marines who was killed in combat and given an honorable military burial in Arlington National Cemetery, was court martialed posthumously on a tenuous charge of treason. The cruelly ambitious United States Secretary of Defense, eager for any opportunity to burnish her reputation, has ordered his body's disinterment and eviction from Arlington. Antigone, desperate but convinced of her older brother's innocence and having exhausted all legal avenues of redress, decides on her only remaining recourse for justice. Written by Michael Justin Lee
