In the contentious wake of the Civil War, a divided country tries to reunite by forging a future in the West. For one homesteader, that future is cut short by a bullet. Now his lawman son returns home to discover a sister that thinks him dead and an injustice waiting to be righted. A classic western, Dead Man’s Burden  explores post-civil war era allegiances in the western frontier, divisions created by modern progress, and family rifts that struggle to resolve themselves in an unforgiving landscape.

 Featuring some of the strongest cinematography to grace this year's festival, and gripping performances by Barlow Jacobs (Low & Behold, Alexander the Last) and Clare Bowen, Dead Man’s Burden is one not to miss!
