Set in the rustic Mid-Western town of One Fall, the film tells the story of a man who miraculously survived a terrible fall from a spectacular 200 foot- high precipice that is the area's major attraction. After recovering, he abruptly abandoned friends and family and disappeared without explanation. The secret he couldn't share with them was that, while recovering, he had suddenly developed the power to heal others. Tired of running away, he returns home after a long absence and decides to use his gift -- but not altruistically. If people pay him, he will cure them. Though he appears to be doing the right thing, he is doing it for for all the wrong reasons, and risks driving away anyone who ever loved or trusted him. As his moral crisis peaks, he must figure out why he survived his fall, and what he is really meant to do with his life. Written by Anonymous

really lacking
8 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

Some of the acting was quite good, the directing was overall - weak. I found the story and the film to be self important and really lacking in originality (for the type of film that has only that to offer).

The music was saccharin and most of the scenes were over lit, creating something that just screams: TV production, trying to be a serious film.

I see that the lead actor also wrote and directed this project. Not surprising.

The actor has charisma, no doubt, but as a director, his work is very homogenized and predictable.

I had big hopes for this film after finding it listed on iTunes. Really disappointing to pay the same for this film as a film by Oliver Stone, One of the Scotts or any of a list of A list pros.

Give this one a miss. My teeth are still aching.

I'm not even going to begin to delve into the imperfections in the production here. Not worth the time.

Thumbs way down.
