Daniel Carr (Dominick Shaw) was sure his life could not get worse. After all, he was in a dead-end job; his wife's real estate business was non-existent; they argued constantly and the one thing that everyone told him would be the answer to all of his problems, he could not do. His late father bequeathed him a valuable piece of commercial property while making him promise to not sell it until the time was right....but his father gave him no clue as to when that time might be. Then his life did get worse. He lost his job, prompting his wife to decide she could no longer handle the pressures of their marriage. But, a chance meeting with a local pastor (Gary Burghoff) convinces Daniel he must be obedient to God's plan for his life. The result of that obedience proves that God's plan is our purpose.

low budget it may be, however...
15 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Budget does not affect acting. Well at least it shouldn't. The screenplay for this wasn't bad at all, its kind of like the Field of Dreams of Christianity, in a sense. The format being video, no one can expect a good quality, but if the acting wasn't AWFUL by everyone except for Burghoff, I'd be able to look past it. I can't take the lead actor seriously, I can't take his blasphemous wife seriously, and I definitely couldn't take his friend/co-worker seriously. The kid's, both under the age of 10 did better. If this can be bought, and re-created with good actors and a better format, it can be a great film, but this version isn't. While I applaud the creator, and understand the difficulties in independent filmmaking, I believe that the director was focused too much on his message, and not enough on actually creating a durable movie.
