"Browncoats: Redemption" is a Firefly/Serenity fan film to be released September 2010. Donations raised from the film’s DVD will be given to five chosen charities supported by the creator and cast of the original series. Set three months after the events of the Universal Studios film, Serenity, Captain Laura Matthews and the crew of Redemption are unintentionally thrown into a situation that some view as the potential catalyst for the second unified rise of the Independents against the Alliance since Unification Day. The Alliane is looking for a scapegoat for Miranda, whereas those unhappy with the Alliance are looking for a rallying cry to take action. Through all of this, a secret about Laura is exposed that shakes the very core of the crew, threateing to break it apart, challenge the trust that Laura has earned with other Browncoats, and undo all of the efforts she has made to keep a sense of peace in her life since the first Unification War.
