Kate Connor's award-winning debut Fort McCoy is a wholesome, heartfelt labour of love reflecting the true story of her family's memories of life at a Wisconsin military base during the Second World War. Frank and Ruby Stirn arrive at the base in May 1944 with their two children and Ruby's younger sister Anna. Unable to fight in the war, a guilty Frank makes use of his skills as a barber on a base that also serves as a POW camp for interned and often unrepentant Germans. The pressures and challenges for the family are played out in the shadow of an enemy who is rarely seen and seldom understood. A notable cast includes Eric Stoltz as Frank and the multi-talented Kate Connor as Ruby. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: The State of Independents.
