The Work and the Glory: American Zion | 2005
In November of 1833, the state of Missouri turned a blind eye as hundreds of its peaceful inhabitants were hunted down and driven from their homes in the dead of night. Against this impending strife, a young man with a divine vision leads a people against the aggression of an anti-hero with a vulnerable past. The Steed family is divided in the wake of the Mormon people's move into the West. Their diverse reactions to a nascent ideology cause the family to struggle to hold together as the strength of their convictions and their filial bonds are tested.
