Thanks for the love, CineStory. This script was also a semifinalist (do they use that term?) at the Sundance Institute last year.
It follows the true story of Hannah Duston, a Puritan woman who, in 1697, one week after giving birth to a daughter, was taken captive by an Abenacki war party in a raid on Haverhill, Massachusetts. After suffering incredible losses, including the death of her child, she retaliated against her captors with an act of shocking violence that changed the course of American history.
