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 relieve him of his livestock under false and illegal pretenses while daughter Jana Connely arrives home again from Afganistan to help take up her father's fight.
Father and daughter face-off against state and local authorities who work to relieve local ranchers of their livestock and western way of life. One of America's last frontiers now finds itself under attack as influence is bought, law enforcement engaged, and valuable livestock targeted and taken.
