SYNOPSIS: The leading mercenary for the British East India Company, Will Reynolds, has just been double-crossed and now is on the run in the American colonies. Working to redeem his name and win back the affections of the woman with whom he’s never been fully truthful, Will now hides behind a new mask in hopes of thwarting his former employer. As his past life closes in on him, Will must somehow gain the trust and the help of his beloved Charlotte—as well as Ben Franklin—while he races against time to defuse a plot of historical proportions. BEYOND THE MASK is a revolutionary new family film that brings history to life in a faith-filled adventure celebrating grace, liberty and the true freedom that can only be found in Christ.
