Storyline

Purpo$e is the story of young Internet entrepreneur, John Elias. Purpo$e is a story about business in the new millenium, and a world shifted away from quality to quantity. But even more important than that, it is an emotional story of a character who learns to value relationships, life balance and spiritual purpose, over self-involvement and financial gain. Fundamentally, John learns that love and a sense of purpose are more powerful and more valuable than money. Written by Anonymous

A truly unique and uplifting movie!
11 February 2002 | by (Johannesburg,South Africa) – See all my reviews

A movie with a purpose! This movie is fresh, vibrant and fast paced. It tackles many social issues surrounding the moral and ethical values of our society. The struggle between good and bad is uniquely blurred, portraying the movie's hero in both roles. Commentaries on money, friendships and one's priorities are brilliantly intertwined into the intriguing plot. The viewer leaves the movie with a very powerful message that lingers on long after the credits have finished.... What is My purpose? Flameboy gives this one a Sizzling 9
