Left without men in the dying days of the American Civil War, three women must fight to defend their home and themselves from two rogue soldiers who have broken off from the fast-approaching Union Army.
Left without men in the dying days of the American Civil War, three Southern women - two sisters and one African-American slave - must fight to defend their home and themselves from two rogue soldiers who have broken off from the fast-approaching Union Army.Written by
Contrary to what many reviews have stated, the historical period depicted in the film is not Sherman's March to the Sea (aka the Savannah Campaign) of the winter of 1864, but the Carolinas Campaign during the spring of 1865. See more »
Heard you shoot. What was it?
Somethin' small n' fast.
Maybe. I don't know if it was even really there. Once that gun goes off, everythin' livin' is gone.
Why's it so hard when the only thing there is you and the rabbit?
[serving up stew]
The wood is big and the rabbit's small.

I liked this movie a lot.. I love Civil war movies and this one is different from most as it's about the women..
It's the ending of the Civil war, a violent time to be outside of Atlanta just before being burned.. Three women struggling to survive on the left overs of a depleted countryside, get caught in the violence of two insane soldiers.
Most important is the way the women overcome ..
This is an intelligent and insightful script, written by Julia Hart.. The plot builds in momentum fairly fast but if you're looking for a man's fight and/or special effects,, this isn't that movie.. It's about strength in the face of fear and making choices that will save all three of their lives..
There's violence and exploitation but the director did not exploit our actresses and I'm really glad that, for once, the actress isn't demanded to strip during a rape scene.. (creating a double abuse,, I hate those directors that do that).. If you liked the pace of The Missing with Kate Blanchett or The Claim with Milla Jovovich, it's similar enough that you'd like this..
