Logline:
An Iraq war veteran, Diondre Howell struggles with PTSD. In a fit of rage, he kills his girlfriend in his parents’ home as they fail to prevent the horrible event that unfolds.  As a manhunt for Diondre is underway, his brother Isaiah, must convince Diondre to do the right thing and turn himself in. We will go on a journey as both Diondre and Isaiah relive the experiences that have led them to this point. While around them, a community and family are shocked and divided as all struggle to come to terms with this tragedy.


Director's Statement: 
In 1998, after 3 years of college, I dropped out and moved back home to live with family. For 4 years I dealt with minor depression as I struggled to find a path for myself. During these years, I spent a lot of time in my grandfather’s church. My grandfather, very concerned about me, would often tell me stories of how as a youth, he joined the military, served in the Korean War, and came home a new man, a better man. He has always credited the military for turning his life around and would often try to persuade me to “sign up”. He felt that if I were to serve in the military, it would give me a sense of purpose and frankly, straighten me out. 
 
My friend, the character of Diondre Howell in this story, would get the same talks from my grandfather, and because of his family’s history of military service, was far more receptive.
 
In August of 2001, I went back to finish my degree at North Carolina State University. My friend, a year earlier had signed up for the National Guard. 3 weeks after the start of class, Tuesday morning, as I was getting ready for class, September 11th happened. Shortly after, my friend was deployed to Iraq. He was never the same. So why do
I want to tell this story? I often wonder if this could have been me.

The Department of Veteran Affairs believes that 13-20 percent of Iraq War Veterans suffer from PTSD.  Rates of suicide amongst veterans is higher than the rate of suicide in the general population. The Department of Veteran Affairs, in a report from June 2018, states that an average of 20 veterans commit suicide everyday. Suicide is one of the many effects that are being studied in relationship to PTSD, along with, depression, anxiety, and other forms of physical and mental conditions. 

At the center of ‘Young Kings’ is an African American soldier that served in the army from May 2000, June 2005. The soldier returns home from active duty in Iraq in 2005 and experiences episodes of psychosis that made it difficult for him to reintegrate into society. Over the course of several years, the soldier becomes more withdrawn, paranoid, and exhibits acts of violence towards family members and loved ones. Repeated requests for help from the VA are denied due to the nature of his discharge from the army - other-than-honorable. In November of 2009, the soldier takes the life of a loved one and is put on trial for first degree murder. His defense is that he was temporarily insane at the time of his murder. The psychological effects of PTSD are the central issue of the trial  

With ‘Young Kings’, I want to explore the real cost of war on our society, our men and women that serve, and the families and communities that support them. How can we as a society treat our veterans to prevent tragedies, like the one that occurs in this story from happening. I believe this film will help to bring attention to PTSD in an underserved community. 
 
ROLES:

[ DIONDRE HOWELL ]
26-30: Male: African American. Diondre is a shell of who he once was before the Iraq War, we follow his journey from a jovial, charming young man who had a life filled with promise, to who he is now, a mountain of a man who is short tempered and always suspicious of the world around him. He experiences strong episodes of psychosis as he struggles to adjust to civilian life in his community. He is the quiet alpha male that dominates every room he enters and those that challenge his authority often times do so at their own peril. As his mental condition deteriorates, and his mental stability becomes more volatile, Diondre struggles to find a way to cope on his own with his PTSD.

[ ISAIAH HOWELL ]
30-35: Male: African American. Diondre’s extremely intelligent and protective older brother. A nice guy who is the jokester of the family and the type that always pushes the humor too far making everyone uncomfortable. When it comes to family Isaiah will do anything to keep those he loves safe even if it means putting himself in harms way. Isaiah is the first to notice that his brother is not the same and it is painful to watch Diondre, this once sweet person, commit bizarre acts without hesitation it.  “I don’t know who came back from Iraq, but that ain’t my brother.”

[ FATIMAH DANEL ]
24-30, Female:  Eritrean, Ethiopian, African American. Diondre's sweet and loving girlfriend who is an immigrant plus a survivor of domestic violence. Fatimah is strong willed, doesn't back down, funny, and the center of attention wherever she goes. Despite his temper getting worse she stays because she truly believes she can help him and it seems she is the only presence that can calm Diondre when he experiences his outbursts of anger. It's her caring and altruistic nature that creates a bond between the two.

[ ZOE HOWELL ]
Female: 45-60: African American. Diondre and Isaiah's smart, resourceful and often time overbearing to a fault mother. As the backbone of the household no decisions in the Howell household are made without her and she is a mother who will move mountains to ensure her children are successful in life. She is a private woman when is it comes to airing family issues and when issues seem apparent to others she will create a facade ensuing outsiders that everything is okay but in private she will take action to resolve the issue. She is determined and going to do what it takes to get Diondre the help he needs.

[ JAMES HOWELL ]
Male: 45-60: African American. Diondre and Isaiah's warm, empathetic and quiet father. A strong silent type, a man of few words that has a wide variety of smiles to communicate clearly what he wants to say or is feeling. He avoids conflict at all costs, but if left with no option, he will stand up to the challenge and defend what he believes is right and those he loves.
