Neale Donald Walsch laid the ground rule for the script: "None of Neale's multiple wives and none of his nine children will be portrayed in this film" in order to protect their identity. See more »

I don't want to spend my life making a living, Neale. I want to spend my life making a life.
A life that makes a difference. A life that is built on love and compassion.

I was very familiar with much of the subject matter of the books by Neale Donald Walsch whose "human story" is portrayed in this movie. I was very curious to see how this mass of spiritual material would be integrated into a story based on the trans-formative phase of his life. What I found was a story that I could identify with and which had many of the universal elements of despair, cry for help, and a response. There was no element of preaching , but rather the message to look inside oneself to the answers which abide. The acting and the cinematography was exquisite in bringing out the depths and extremes of the human experience. These were/are real everyday people with real experiences with whom any one who has ever had a sense of hopelessness can identify. The movie left me touched and uplifted and open to possibilities.
