In a small, wooded town, a young man struggles to leave a secret militia started by his father.
Abandoned by his mother at a young age, 25-year old Presley Alan French (Thomas Stroppel) has grown up in the shadow of his father and a small town, secret militia called The Lodge. Along with his cousins, he is committed for life to participate in the group’s self-appointed mission of justice and capital punishment. Over the years, more than 20 executions have been carried out in the name of community service. When The Group forms connections to a national militia with an extremist Right Wing agenda, Presley must decide whether to break all family bonds or become an accomplice in politically motivated killings.
With an eerily beautiful tone, Bucksville touches on the timely topics of ethics and the militia movement, within the context of family conflict. It is also a film about love and loss of innocence.
