“Book Ends”

by Caleb Harmann

YouTUBE | Facebook | Google | IMDB | Trailer

Set in 1972 when racial tensions were high, a widowed young lady is approached by a black book salesman. Their short acquaintance changes the lady’s life.

The closing of a chapter can be exciting, happy, or sad. But there’s something great that happens at the end of every chapter no matter what the cause, another’s born.

Caleb Hermann has been producing, writing, and directing since he was fifteen years old. His films have won several awards including a Best Short Film, Best Director, and a few Best Screenplays. He wants to continue on making films to the glory of God.

Congratulations Caleb!

Here is the film. Enjoy!
