Blood is Spirit

A Film by Rupert Gruber

Synopsis

Bozeman, Montana, 1985. This is the story of the thirty-eight- year-old sociopath Charles Mansfield. Due to strong isolation, Charles’ mind continously drifts towards a utopia, in which he finds himself superior to the society that once rejected him. In illusion of total superiority, he starts a bloody rage to prepare the world for a new era only led by ingenious, better men.
