Kingdom Coming

A short film about a boy, the father that loved him, and the nation that changed without him.

The World The War Made

Following the end of the American Civil War, Robert, the son of a wealthy Northern general, comes back from abroad, determined to take responsibility for the death of a man he hired to fight for him. However, during a raucous post-war celebration at his family home, it becomes clear that not everyone shares his romantics of self-betterment.

Searching the house for his father, Robert encounters a variety of people the war has affected. Generals who have enjoyed the taste of blood, men who have romantic hopes for a grand new future, and friends who have been completely broken by the horrors they lived through shape Robert’s perception of what he’s missed. No longer understanding the place he once called home, he finds it is not as easy as he thought to escape the past and the ghosts that come with it.
