Storyline

Suffering from the loss of his only child, Stanley has secluded himself to a dark and lonely place. Sullen and without hope, he continues to hide from and neglect those he loves despite their attempts to reach out to him. In what seems to be the final days of their already strained marriage, his wife Lisa is presented with a strange gift; an old oil lamp from a far off land. Along with the lamp comes a mysterious messenger and and a question that causes them to search the depths of their hearts for what's truly important in life... If you could have anything you wanted, what would YOU ask for? Written by Joe Jestus

A Lamp to light your way!
2 January 2012 | by (Midwest City, OK) – See all my reviews

The Lamp is a wonderful, heart-warming movie for the whole family. . Louis Gossett Jr. is one of the greatest actors out there! I can relate to this movie I lost my son in 2007 to Leukemia he was 17. I kind of died inside and after watching this movie I can see I can not only change my life I could make someone else's life better. If you have a little imagination and want to see a good move this one is the Lamp to light your way! When you think your life has changed so drastically that nothing will ever make you happy again, you discover that God's plan, while different from yours, is always perfect if you "Just Believe"!
