Advertised by its distributor as a successor to such theatrically released religious dramas as Facing the Giants (2006) and Fireproof (2008) -- though it came from a completely different production team -- this inspirational saga recounts the story of Jake Taylor (Randy Wayne), a well-rounded, Middle American teen who seems to have everything going for him, his world in perfect balance. But when an unexpected tragedy strikes in the form of a childhood friend's death, Jake suddenly begins to question everything he had long taken for granted, and he's soon forced to make a decision that will permanently change his future. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
My daughters and I are extras in this movie and I work with teens...We know the writers and their hearts are pure gold...they also work with teens on a daily basis....this is about reality. It has all the issues to impact those who maybe going through at least one of these difficult times...don't forget what it was like to be a teen...Everyone's life is worth every effort! Make a difference in your world!
I found this movie very moving and inspiring. I have daughters in high school and junior high, and it reminded me how real their problems can be and how much they need guidance and support from parents and other adults in their lives. I knew someone who killed herself in seventh grade, and she felt rejected, isolated, alone. I have never forgotten it. Be a friend to the friendless; every life is worth saving.
