The Doan Brothers, written by Ben & Oliver Samuels
Logline: The incredible true story of five Bucks County Quakers who became folk heroes in the earliest days of the American Revolution. Pushed to fight and robbing from the British and Continentals alike with Robin Hood-daring, the Doans served no King or Congress, but fought for the beautiful, untouched land of the Native Peoples and William Penn in one of the greatest and most heart-wrenching love stories of unchanging men in a changing country ever told.
