A testament to the human spirit
21 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an incredible (true) story of love and forgiveness and illustrates the importance of the lessons imparted early in life and the strength that can come from a loving family.

You need to see this movie. The R rating is uncalled for. There is no graphic violence, nudity or even cursing. A family with teenagers could watch this one for movie night.

For a movie with a small ($1,000,000) budget, the production is excellent and the cinematography is well executed. The acting was terrific, with Brooks Douglass turning in an outstanding first time performance, playing the role of his own father. Mike Vogel is great and has all the mannerisms of Brooks Douglass down cold. Taryn Manning really drew me into the story as Leslie Douglass (Brooks' sister). Erin Chambers was very good as the reporter who ties the whole story together.
