REVIEW: DEAD MAN'S BURDEN
Reeling from a Civil War that divided both their country and their family, a brother and sister reunite on the western frontier only to uncover each other’s unforgivable secrets..
The year is 1870, and a fragmented America still strains to pick up the pieces from a savage Civl War. Martha (Clare Bowen, Nashville) and her husband, Heck (David Call, Fringe), are living on a homestead in rural New Mexico struggling to make due. When a mining company expresses interest in buying their land, Martha and Heck see their ticket to a better life..
Their hopeful plans are complicated when Martha’s oldest brother Wade (Barlow Jacobs, Shotgun Stories)–whom she thought lost in the war–returns to the family homestead after learning of their father’s death. A defector to the Union Army, Wade soon discovers Martha is hiding secrets of her own, and tensions mount as clashing convictions begin to overshadow their desire to reconcile.
