SHORT FILM SYNOPSIS
Based on an incredible true story, the short film 'Across' brings to life a pivotal moment in the boyhood of Father Augustine Tolton, the first African American priest. “Gus,” a 10-year-old Missouri field slave, is devastated when his father flees the plantation to go fight for the Union in the Civil War. With the brutal overseer George watching his every move, Gus tries to convince his mother to take the rest of the family on the dangerous journey north.
To achieve his freedom, Gus - along with his mom, brother and infant sister - must not only outrun George and the slave-catchers, but also avoid Confederate soldiers, eager to collect the lucrative bounty. Most dauntingly of all, the mighty Mississippi River stands between Gus and free land in Illinois.
Across airs 10 pm ET on EWTN TV this Wed Dec 18th!
