‘The Blind’ Based On True Story Of Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson Finding God

An upcoming film shines a light on the early life, the downfall and ultimately, the redemption of a beloved television star. 

“Duck Dynasty” was a popular reality television program that aired on A&E for several years. The show followed the antics of Phil, Willie, Si, Jase and Jep Robertson and their wildly successful duck-hunting business. Viewers instantly fell in love with the Robertson family. The gang from Louisiana, with trademark scraggly beards, has a decidedly unconventional way of doing nearly everything. 

A trailer for a new, upcoming film posted on YouTube takes a closer look at the early life and struggle of one of those beloved members of the Robertson clan: Phil Robertson. The trailer for “The Blind” begins with Phil and Kay exchanging vows near a swamp. 

The video then quickly cuts to Phil being told that “he can do just about anything you put your mind to, Phil Robertson.” A few moments later, we see what else, but several men in the great outdoors, wearing camo and using duck calls. But things are not as good as they might appear at first glance.

Viewers learn that Phil has developed a drinking problem. He’s seen falling to the ground with a can in his hand. In the next scene, a woman states that because of his issue with alcohol, “he becomes the devil, Si.” Phil’s drinking threatens to destroy his family, with him ordering his wife to “get out.”

The trailer shows Phil, whose life spirals out of control, being told that “you got to die and then you got to be born again.” 

“The Blind,” according to the video’s description, looks at “Phil’s life as he seeks to conquer the shame of his past, ultimately finding redemption in an unlikely place.”

The film opens in theaters on September 28.

Ephesians 1:7 “In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.”
