The Forgotten has won the Director's Choice award for Best Feature at the Sedona
International Film festival.
October, 1950 - U.N. forces have crossed the 38th Parallel marking the beginning
of the invasion of North Korea. During a vicious enemy assault, a decimated U.S.
Army Tank Platoon flees in retreat, and two tanks find themselves lost and
isolated from the company. Corporal William Byrne, an idealistic, God-fearing
young enlistee, gets thrown into the command of the stranded tanks after the
death of the platoon's Sergeant. Fighting against unseen enemies and waning
spirits, the tanks crisscross the unfamiliar landscape in search of hope and
allies. Death, dissention, and a wounded North Korean POW test William's and his
crew's will. Struggling to maintain his faith, William's only escape from the
suffering and frustration of war are the memories of his wife and the delusions
of his morphine-addled mind. His story and that of the journey of tank crew
Cowboy 2 is a story of sacrifice and a quest for redemption in a world where
humanity and nature collide.
