DESERTER is the journey of Ryan and Jen Johnson, a deserting soldier and his young wife, as they flee across the country to seek refugee status over the Canadian border. As they move from safe house to safe house, we get to know Ryan and Jen, two shy, small-town kids from the Central Valley who joined the military because there were no jobs and decide that they must make a heroic stand in order to escape an illegal and immoral war. DESERTER is a political road movie with one of the few happy endings that this war has given us.
