For Arty Cooper, the unthinkable has happened. He has lost his only son in the Iraq War. While he grieves and tries to heal, a refugee Iraqi family has moved in next door, dredging up his anger and prejudice. He reacts by shunning them… then begins to build a fence around his property… blocking them out and his emotions in. When his neighbor’s young daughter suddenly goes missing, the community is shaken. Arty is suspected and finally confronts his pain and fear he discovers that the first steps of his healing comes from a most unexpected place. The Fence represents “the best of what Independent film production is all about”… a powerful and compelling story brought together by a passionate cast and crew. The Fence was shot entirely on the Connecticut Shoreline with the help and support of both Iraq Veterans of the 143rd MP Battalion and Gold Star families from around the country who gave willingly of their time, experience, hearts, souls and tears to help deliver an authentic film experience. Shown at Arlington National Cemetery during all of Memorial Day weekend 2012, The Fence will tug at your heart and soul for years to come. It will change you.
