The Swing King (aka Long Overdue)

During the first two days of the Battle of the Bulge, a famous band leader becomes trapped behind German lines with a female correspondent, an African American truck driver, a German prisoner and his military escort, and a medic with his three wounded patients. To survive the harsh weather and pursuing Germans they must learn to overcome their personal prejudices and conflicting agendas. One must make the ultimate sacrifice to save the others. Also placed as a finalist in the Charleston International Film Festival.
