In the latest film by Lynn Shelton, Cynthia (Jillian Bell) has inherited what appears to be a Civil War sword from her grandfather, who believed the artifact proved that the South actually won the war. She and her partner Mary (Michaela Watkins) attempt to unload the sword onto a curmudgeonly pawnshop owner (Marc Maron) and reluctantly enter a world of conspiracy theory and Southern disillusionment.

Shelton is a longtime IFFBoston favorite, the director behind such memorable films as TOUCHY FEELY (2013), YOUR SISTER'S SISTER (2012), and MY EFFORTLESS BRILLIANCE (2008). SWORD OF TRUST faithfully showcases her flair for acerbic quirk.
