Five years after the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd, crosses paths with Johanna, a 10-year old girl taken by the Kiowa people. Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd is forced to return Johanna to her aunt and uncle, where the law states she belongs. The two will face tremendous challenges as they search for a place that either can call home and travel in Mexico and Texas. There is attention to detail in every corner of this movie: from James Newton Howard’s lovely score to the subtle performance by Tom Hanks. 

Cast: Tom Hanks, Ray McKinnon, Elizabeth Marvel, Mare Winningham, Helena Zengel.

NO TICKETS or REGISTRATION REQUIRED. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Masks are required regardless of vaccination status.
