Gwen's mom is fighting a serious addiction to pain killers, and her dad, a tough corporate lawyer, has just taken the civil suit case against the owner's of her new church. Gwen's nurturing kindness helps heal all those around who "thirst" for unconditional love and acceptance. Written by Maverick Entertainment

Good purpose; amateur acting
23 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My rating is based on content, not on the quality of acting (which is definitely amateurish). The film touches on many current issues: prescription drug abuse, bullying, dads who provide "things" as a substitute for spending time with the family, single parenting, women who will put up with anything from a man rather than be alone, alcoholism...too many actually to cover adequately.

The young African-Americans who portrayed the majority of the film's characters should be encouraged, in my opinion, for their attempt to be part of a solution rather than attacked for their lack of experience and expertise (which I feel the overall low rating does). I felt they were more effective than most of the adult actors. The only character whose clothing seemed out-of-place was the pastor. No black church I've ever attended would have had a pastor preaching who dressed that casually in the pulpit.

In literary circles, a sudden change of heart or action which results in a happy ending is sometimes called a "come-to-Jesus moment." As expected in what must have been conceived as an evangelistic film, that is EXACTLY what happens here-literally. I do admire the sincerity of the Christian message given, one which is often ridiculed today in many movies and TV shows. It ties up a few loose ends and leaves a lot dangling, but I still enjoyed the story.
