While her father is away serving in the military, Sadie battles to preserve his place on the home front when her mother takes an interest in the newest resident at the Shady Plains Trailer Park.
“With SADIE, I have tried to create a cautionary tale with humor and humanity that I hope will contribute to a larger cultural conversation. I set out to write a war film where the soldier was a 13-year-old girl and the battlefield was the trailer park where she lived. Sadie goes to war against her enemy only to realize too late that her actions have not solved anything. The wake of her deeds will affect her whole life, and by considering that I hope that the audience might consider the wake of the deeds we perpetrate as a culture, and the enduring damage they do to us all.”
