The Toy Soldiers

Join Indievents and Club David on Wednesday, February 11th, for the South Dakota Premiere of The Toy Soldiers.

On one evening in a decade of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, the innocence of youth and family unravels. Five parallel coming-of-age stories dramatize the stages of grief. A youthful mother in a custody battle over her children, finds tranquillity with the bottle. The abuse of her ex-husband still haunts the children; a nineteen year old drug addict, and his younger brother, a bullied closet homosexual. There's the story of the dog; a teen who offers sexual favors to gain acceptance, the challenged classmate who would do anything for her love, and the redhead beauty, haunted by a secret, tragic past. These lives and others will change forever on this final evening before their hangout, the Toy Soldiers Roller Rink, closes its doors for the final time.

The Toy Soldiers has been very hot at festivals. It has won four awards and been nominated for several others. The film takes place in the 80's, and really takes you there.

Live Q and A via Skype with director Erik Peter Carlson will follow the screening

The screening will be held at Club David in Sioux Falls on Wednesday, February 11th, 2015, and will begin at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance and $12 at the door.

All Profits will be donated to The Sioux Falls AIDS Walk Benevolence Fund.
