Henry Ford was a complex genius. He tried to mold his son, Edsel, in his own image. The result was a family rivalry that was both cruel and tragic.

“A deeply moving work that understands the ambiguous nature of history and the human heart.” –ColumbusUnderground.com

“A historical drama that carries meaning for audience members of all ages.”
