FOR ROBBING THE DEAD
— The Film —
Henry Heath, a grieving lawman whose daughter has recently died, is assigned custody of the ghoulish Jean Baptiste, a notorious robber of 300 graves. Against the perilous Utah desert terrain, the contempt of an entire community, and his own prejudice, Heath must somehow keep a marked man alive.
Redemption: For Robbing the Dead is a story of compassion - compassion toward those who may seem the least deserving of Christian love. It follows the story of Henry Heath, a law officer in 1862 Salt Lake City. Heath finds himself responsible for the well-being of a prisoner whom he despises - an impoverished French immigrant named Jean Baptiste who is convicted of robbing the graves of the recently deceased. Baptiste is exiled to Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake. With no one willing to look after this man, Henry Heath becomes Baptiste's sole defense against the hostile isolation of Antelope Island and the contempt of an entire community. Through his somewhat reluctant service, Heath's heart softens and his own sorrows find relief.
The Filmmakers: The film enjoys significant, ongoing international exposure, from a limited theatrical release, to extensive and ongoing availability through retail outlets, online DVD purchase points, Netflix, pay-per-view cable outlets, and streaming venues such as iTunes and Amazon Prime.
FirstLight Independent LLC developed the film as a start-to-finish executive production entity, including concept development, script supervision, assembly of the production team (including our amazing writer/director Tom Russell), securing legal chain of title and SAG approvals, insurance, on-set executive oversight, review of initial edits, picture lock, post color correction approvals and oversight of deliverables to our chosen distribution outlets.
We're grateful to have worked with such a dedicated team of creative filmmaker collaborators on this project.
