Remme's Ride is based on the incredible true story of Louis Remme, a French-Canadian who comes to America seeking his fortune. He strikes it rich during the California gold rush selling cattle to hungry miners, but then suddenly loses everything on Black Friday, February 23rd, 1855. Overnight, Louis goes from riches to rags, when his life savings disappear after California's banks go under. Louis owns a certificate of deposit proving he has money in an account, but no California bank will honor it.
Gold Rush, California was one of America's first melting pots, with Spanish, American, French, Chinese, and Native American cultures clashing together, sometimes violently, to create one of the most rich periods in our history. We want to honestly portray this period without the rose-colored glasses. Our protagonist is mixed-race, with both French and Indian ancestry, and so he will have a unique perspective on local conflicts, and the ability to bridge different cultures.
Above everything else, Remme's Ride is a story of determination, and of one man's refusal to ever give up.
