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 find 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.

You can see the whole film in better quality in three parts by using miro and adding the Friendly Fire channel.
