Heroic Love Movie
Almost without fail, when people hear the compelling story of the Gruters brothers, their reaction is that “this should be a movie”. If we are successful in our mission, it will be.
Our goal is to get the attention of Hollywood decision makers in order to bring the story of Heroic Love to life as a major motion picture.
Heroic Love tells the true story
of two Academy brothers. The elder, Capt. Guy D. Gruters, POW
, was shot down twice over North Vietnam and held for five and one half nightmarish years as a prisoner of war in the infamous “Hanoi Hilton.” And the younger, Capt. Terry Gruters,
who volunteered to fly three tours during the war and ultimately took part in the B52 bombing raids of North Vietnam in December 1972 that freed many POW’s, including his brother.
Their story, which includes the moving account of Guy’s friendship with fellow POW, Lance Sijan and the care he was priviledged to provide him in his final days, is a beautifully inspiring testimony to heroism and the indomitable power of faith, hope, and love in the face of even the most desperate circumstances and unspeakable inhumanity.
