"White Feather" - Short Film
The third short drama produced by Middle Realm Productions, written and directed by Daniel Arbon.
"White Feather" is based on the true story of Daniel's great-grandfather.
It’s 1919, the Great War is over and George Ernest Arbon is trying to rebuild his life and his business. He makes a long walk out of town with a crate of crockery to be examined by a potential customer. The lady is pleased with his wares but near finalising the sale, recognises the man as a local Conscientious Objector. She returns with a White Feather, a symbol of his Cowardice.
As the feather floats down before him, memories of the last three years come flooding back to George, the public scorn, the tribunal and his service in the trenches testing the courage of his convictions. Perhaps he’s not as cowardly as many people believe.

With the ruthless "Lord Edward" known as "Ironheart", looking to break his daughter's will, their own mettle will tested over Duncan's anvil.
