While casually browsing the bookshelves at a local library, a young woman stumbles across a book about the sixteen year old martyr, Lady Jane Grey. As she attentively ingests each word, her mind is captivated by the realism of the events unfolding before her. Pages continue to turn as moments turn to hours. Her imagination soon gives way to reality as we are transported back in time to find Jane (Jerica Henline) on the eve of her execution, rejected by her people, dethroned, and locked in a tower because of her refusal to acquiesce to the faith of her cousin, Mary Tudor, and having for comfort her only faithful friend, Mrs. Ellen (Emily Meinerding). Follow this valiant young woman through the final hours of her life and be a part of the few to uncover the truth of this magnificent, untold story!
This short film is designed to educate viewers on the true story of this long forgotten martyr whose life has been shrewdly subjected to romanticism and falsehood by the propaganda of Hollywood screenwriters and liberal historical authors. Accompanied by an unwavering desire to strive for excellence in production values, it is our goal that viewers will be inspired by the story of a young woman who was resolved to remain steadfast in her allegiance to Jesus Christ. May God be glorified and His name be exalted. And may this film render the justice due to The Forgotten Martyr: Lady Jane Grey.
