Heartwarming... story triumphs low budget!
22 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Alright... first of all, the movie was done for a $20k budget. You'll see in the first five minutes that it was shot with a video camera and, while the best that could be done with a prosumer video camera, it just doesn't look like a feature film quality production. Then you get past that and ignore it... that's when God starts working through the film.

Alex and Stephen have created a fantastic story here, and one you'll want to share with others. Afterwards, you'll realize, as I did, that they have managed to created a film with $20k that's better than most of the multi-million dollar productions out of Hollywood today. You'll laugh, cry, and more importantly, you'll feel the presence of God in this film. Highly, highly recommended.
