Storm Warriors is a period action-adventure drama inspired by true events. The completed feature film screenplay is currently available on the market.
Some things only storms can reveal. While taking a business trip with his wife and son on a last ditch effort to save his
foundering marriage, a London stagecoach builder, Lionel Lukin, loses everything in a tragic wreck upon the Goodwin Sands. Set against mid-1800s coastal England, and based upon amazing historical accounts of the first-ever high seas rescues and the invention of the unsinkable lifeboat, Lionel struggles to find new purpose in a sea-savvy, hard-edged community that sees things far differently than he does. With regrets of a failed marriage
he feels responsible for, shame about his cowardice during the wreck, and overwhelmed by grief and a paralyzing fear of water, Lionel ultimately discovers heroic things within himself that only storms reveal and inspires the transformation of an entire community.
Based on the popular Storm Warriors novel first published by NavPress in 2007 and later resulting in the launching of the International Not-for-Profit of the same name in 2017.
