An unusually understated and powerful American indie, The Retrieval is a subtly nuanced character drama set on the outskirts of the U.S. Civil War. The story follows a fatherless thirteen year-old boy sent north by his bounty hunter gang on a dangerous mission to retrieve a wanted man. During their journey towards their reckoning, the initially distant pair develop unexpected emotional bonds. As his feelings grow, the boy is consumed by conflicting emotions and a gut-wrenching ultimate decision. The Retrieval overcomes a modest budget to explore a rich emotional drama that remains inaccessible to mainstream Hollywood.
