“The main character in this film, Gary, is a modern man who befriends a Civil War soldier. Gary is self-absorbed and lazy, like a lot of modern men. The soldier tries to teach Gary how to be an honorable and responsible. And Gary teaches the soldier about modern times. It’s a bit of an ‘Odd Couple’ situation that leads to both comedic and heartfelt moments.” -- Todd Bieber, former Mifflinburg-area resident.
