Johnny is an inspirational story about a ten year old boy in a foster group home who is dying of leukemia. Even though he has every reason to doubt God all he does is trust Him. Johnny is sent to see Doctor Carter to see if there is anything that doctor Carter can do to help. Doctor Carter ends up taking Johnny into his home where his wife rejects Johnny as he reminds her of the son she lost two years previously, and where Johnny bonds with their nine year old daughter. This is a truly inspirational story that will leave you in tears and filling spiritually fed. Watch as Johnny works to heal this family that has been torn apart by grief. Written by

At 20:58 on the DVD in the river walk scene with Dr. Carter and his wife Julia, director D. David Morin
mentions that he had to "cross the 180" during editing because they were losing light during the shoot and didn't get all of the shots they needed to keep the eye lines straight during editing, so they had to flip the film over which is evident when the mole on the left side of Dr. Carter's face changes to his right side (20:48 and 21:00) and back (21:09).

Director D. David Morin
points out (DVD at 07:18) that Johnny's red on white Kurt Warner football jersey (02:15 to 06:58) turns into a white on red jersey (at around 4 mins) when he is in Dr. Drew Carter's office waiting for the doctor. David adds that the wardrobe lead (Nancy Terryn
) was ill one day (about day 12 on the 15 day shoot) and he didn't notice the change. Apparently, that was the day the white jersey was used because at 31:34 when Johnny and Kayla start out on a bicycle montage and Johnny is in the red jersey, David notes the shot was taken on day one of the shoot when they hired a crane for the sweeping panorama. The only other white jersey shots are during Johnny's first day at school (40:15 to 41:03). See more
