Mission Statement:
The Grayling is the heart-wrenching story of one family’s struggle to survive in the Czechoslovakian wilderness while being sought out for extermination by the Nazis during World War Two. The easily identifiable characters and the dangers they face while fighting to survive make this a film that audiences of all ages and backgrounds will be drawn to. The story seamlessly blends romance and humor with fast-paced action and tense thrill sequences to bring the viewer a glimpse of what it must have been like during one o the darkest times in human history.
The small cast and intimate settings are what set this World War Two tale apart from so many others. Instead of offering the viewer a large sweeping view of the conflict, The Grayling gives the reader a more poignant look at what it was like for the individual, rather than the masses, to face the horrors of the relentless Nazi war machine.
The film story blends Cheryl Freier’s narrative with the mood of Martin Freier’s poetry to bring a unique perspective to a widely explored and heavily produced subject matter.
A Jewish family struggles to survive in the forests outside of their Czechoslovakian village after escaping the clutches of the Nazi war machine. Their determination, resourcefulness and love for each other are all they have to defend against the threats of both man and nature as they ride out the horror that was the Second World War.
