Robert & John
formerly Chicago 1919
After young Robert is faced with the murder of his best friend, his emotions – sadness, anger, fear, disgust – conflict on how to best navigate a city under siege.
Robert and John is a story for heroes, survivors and lost souls.
It’s a period piece for those who believe in the American dream in spite of history, past and present. It’s for those who dare to question, transform and pursue a better future.
As a 9/11 survivor, Robert and John is Ms. Murray's way of reminding us that we can break free of trauma and evolve through it. The experience of loss and temporary defeat is the fuel for compassion. The outcome is the opportunity, and/or obligation, to heal ourselves and others.
In the aftermath, survivors experience a newly defined individual wholeness and collective unity. Ms. Murray refers to it as oneness and it is her hope that all can tune into it through storytelling and the magic of film.
