Set during the U.S. Civil War, "The Retrieval" follows a fatherless 13-year-old boy (Ashton Sanders) who is forced by a bounty-hunter gang on a dangerous mission to retrieve a wanted man, an ex-slave (Tishuan Scott), and bring him back South. During their journey, the initially distant pair develops unexpected emotional bonds. As his feelings grow, the boy is consumed by conflicting emotions and a gut-wrenching ultimate decision. Offering a unique perspective on the Civil War and the black experience during slavery, "The Retrieval" also tells a deeply personal story about a boy’s search for an anchor in a turbulent and dangerous world. Variety describes the film as "equal parts suspenseful road movie, persuasively detailed period drama, and emotionally resonant coming-of-age story." With writer/director Eska.
