This inspiring new film from Navis Pictures, producers of St. Bernadette of Lourdes, tells the moving story of France's little known religious civil war in the years following the French Revolution. Featuring an exuberant and gifted cast of over 250 young Catholics, it is a powerful story  of sacrifice and martyrdom, but told here with a careful sense of reserve.  An outstanding movie for the whole family. 

In 1793, after enduring three and a half years of  persecution of the Church by the architects of the French Revolution, a small band of faithful peasants and nobles from the Vendee region of France began a Catholic "counter-revolution".  This is the unknown, heroic story of the valiant, six year struggle of the people of that small section of western France to restore their Holy Religion and their King.  Steeped in the spiritual influence of St. Louis de Montfort, and wearing their rosaries and emblems of the Sacred Heart, their sacrifices resulted in countless martyrdoms, and ultimately won the restoration of religious freedom for all of France. 

This beautiful film is a love-letter to the Vendean people, and was produced to honor the memory of these brave men and women who willingly sacrificed their lives, "for God and King".

Written and directed by Jim Morlino, featuring stunning performances by the large, talented cast of young people, gorgeous cinematography, and a glorious, sweeping, original music score by Kevin Kaska;  this unique film will inspire audiences of all ages with its timeless themes of courage, self-sacrifice, faith, and love. 

An especially timely story in light of recent current events...  The brave men and women of the Vendee truly became "Soldiers for Christ."  

Producer's Note to Parents About Content:  Although this is a war story, the film is safe for practically all ages.  There is no blood, but the battle sequences are energetic, with swords, gunshots, cannon fire, and explosions.  The devil is depicted in a few scenes as a dark, hooded figure moving in and out of shadows, and there is some of what would be characterized as "mild menace" where a priest is chased by armed soldiers, and a peasant is confronted by the same - most of these elements are represented in the film's trailer above.   There isn't a single instance of profanity, nor a whiff of vulgarity or innuendo anywhere in the film and although it has not been officially rated, I would give it a "G" Rating, but perhaps because of the battle scenes, the MPAA might give it a "PG".
