WHAT'S THIS FILM ALL ABOUT?
12:15 Sunday is a documentary short about a true story that comes from the memories of veteran John Jenkins's during his time in the European Theatre of WWII.
This film is heavily complimented with dramatic reenactments. This is the primary reason why the film needs the above funding and support.

As a navigator, John flew in B-17 planes in the United States 8th Air Force to direct their heading towards the target. During his first mission, his plane was singled out for heavy fire by the enemy, forcing him and his crew to bail out over German territory. After John parachuted safely to the ground, he now found himself alone and with little hope of escape behind enemy lines.
John's attempt to return to American lines would bring him into perilous circumstances for a defenseless man. But every step back towards friendly lines sparked hope and spurred him onward.
Thank you for looking into 12:15 Sunday. Your support will carry John's story to the screen!
