With the Feds always around the corner – or standing at the border – Frank and Brit flee to Montreal to sit out the war in Vietnam. They’re young and defiant and standing on principle, but learn that simply living “next door” is far more complicatedMoreWith the Feds always around the corner – or standing at the border – Frank and Brit flee to Montreal to sit out the war in Vietnam.

They’re young and defiant and standing on principle, but learn that simply living “next door” is far more complicated than they would have imagined. Armed danger arrives in the person of a man committed to reprisal for the actions of the two war protestors – or two draft dodgers, as he would see it – and will go to lethal means to press the point.Back in the 1960s and early seventies, as many as 100,000 young American men fled to Canada and other countries to avoid service in Vietnam. The military draft was still in effect and more than five million men rotated in and out of duty in Southeast Asia, with 52,000 never to return alive.Frank and Brit are imagined, but serve to describe the life and challenges that confronted a generation grappling with a small war that grew large.

Even while struggling to fashion a life together in a foreign country, the couple faces the political undercurrent of principle versus flag and country.When You Run, then, is a controversial story of conscience against a background of fear and desire, of great risk, of surprising innovation, and a love between families that cannot help but to inspire.

And most of all, it takes a personal look at how people personally resolved – or did not resolve – a national crisis.
