A film for anyone who's ever been bullied or is afraid to stand up for their beliefs
I was dubious about this film when I first started watching it, however I quickly realised that it is a really good film. Parents always tell their kids that they should stand up to bullies, and to stand up for their opinions and beliefs, but few can tell them why they should stand up for themselves, or how. That's exactly what this films does.
It takes the story of a Christian boy proudly showing his grandfather's Bible to his classmates, only to be mocked for doing so by the class bullies, and when the teacher tries to punish them, it only makes things worse. Naturally he feels very upset, and his faith is shaken by the experience, but he receives a vision in his dreams of how Christians have been persecuted from the time of Jesus to the 20th century, and how so many of them were prepared to die to defend what they believed in. After the boy awakens, he's ready to stand up to those bullies, but not through violence.
I was really impressed and touched by this movie, and was especially interested in how persecution of Christians never seems to end. I am a huge history buff, but I still learned a lot from this movie.
I recommend it to Christians, people who are interested in history, and anyone who's ever been bullied at school.
