David's screenplay, The Stand at Paxton County, helmed by director Brett Hedlund and produced by ESX Productions  & Forrest Films.  


Set in North Dakota, livestock rancher Dell Connelly finds himself targeted by a combination of nefarious forces that work to relieve him of his livestock under false and illegal pretenses. Daughter Jana Connelly arrives home again from Afghanistan to help take up her father's fight. 

Dell and Jana now face-off against state and local authorities who work to isolate local ranchers and target their livestock and western way of life. One of America's last frontiers is now under attack as influence is bought, law enforcement engaged, and valuable livestock identified and illegally confiscated.
