Caldwell's Bomb

by Bill Rogers

Directed by Herman Johansen

It's the summer of 2010, and a small Missouri town is dying' hemorrhaging jobs, population, and civility. Many of the people who remain are confused, frightened, and looking for scapegoats to blame for their troubles.

Several of the town’s angriest men have formed the Eagles of Liberty militia to battle those they blame for unemployment, changing demographics, and what they perceive as the conspiracy to destroy traditional American values.

Time & Place: The summer of 2010 in Southern Missouri. 


All characters are from the Midwest
