UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION
After surviving a plane crash, weeks of floating on a makeshift raft in the Pacific and then years of torture as a prisoner of war, Louis “Louie” Zamperini finally returns home to California, seemingly unbroken.
When the war ended, his battle began.
Based on Laura Hillenbrand’s best-selling book, UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION begins where the hit movie UNBROKEN concludes, continuing the inspiring and unbelievable true story of the Olympian and World War II hero.
Haunted by nightmares of his torment, Louie sees himself as anything but a hero. Despite battling demons, anger and alcohol abuse, Louie feels obligated to participate in an Army tour to raise money for War Bonds. But he ends up focusing more on hotel bars than his public appearances, and Louie is eventually ordered to take R&R on the beaches of Miami.
There, he meets Cynthia, a young woman who captures his eye—and his heart. After a whirlwind courtship, the couple marries and moves to Los Angeles.
While pursuing every avenue of hope he can find—from trying to re-establish himself as a world-class runner to get-rich-quick investment opportunities—Louie’s wrathful quest for revenge drives him deeper into despair … and the bottle.
Hopeless and on the brink of divorce, Cynthia experiences Billy Graham’s 1949 Los Angeles Crusade where she finds faith in God and a renewed commitment to her marriage and her husband. She turns to God, and prays for Louie to find peace and forgiveness.
From the producer of UNBROKEN and the screenwriter of A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT, UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION stars Samuel Hunt (Chicago P.D.) as Zamperini; Merritt Patterson (The Royals) as his wife, Cynthia; David Sakurai (Iron Fist) as Zamperini’s prison guard Watanabe/‘The Bird’; Gary Cole (TALLADEGA NIGHTS. THE BALLAD OF RICKY BOBBY) as Dr. George Bailey and Will Graham as his own grandfather, evangelist Billy Graham.
In theaters this fall, UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION brings to life the rest of Louie Zamperini’s powerful real-life story of forgiveness, redemption and amazing grace.
