Traitor

By Michael Wisner

A string of ritualistic, serial-style execution murders surround Washington’s intelligence apparatus during the Revolutionary War fall to a damaged, dark knight operative to solve – the outcome of which could change the entire course of the war and the fate and birth of a new nation.

Written in the style of Titanic, Braveheart: historically meticulous detail surrounding a fictional story. In the vein of Young Sherlock Holmes, the film uniquely captures actual, state of the art technology in the 18th Century including stunning visuals of the first submarine invented by Bushnell out of Yale, the first polygraph and ciphers and code devices invented by Thomas Jefferson, the surveillance use of hot air balloon. The espionage devices, machines, weapons and even major characters at first glance may seem James Bond-like until it becomes crystal clear every device, weapon and person are based upon actual historical fact, giving the story a rich texture that only supports and makes more vivid the powerful personalities in this unfolding mystery.

The film includes never-seen-on-screen Freemason rituals – Washington, Franklin, Revere, Hancock – all being Freemasons. Written to focus on story, character arcs and intrigue, the film avoids grandiose battle scenes and unneeded production costs.
