Storyline

Twenty year veteran investigator Sergeant James Buanacore (Wade Williams) starts the most important investigation of his life when a drug bust goes tragically bad. The death of the apparent suspect forces James out of the job he loves and into retirement. When James' wife Stephanie (Nicole Abisinio) has a miscarriage, he is devastated and begins to wonder about and question his previously strong faith. Depressed and angry, James isolates himself until his brother (David Sanborn) encourages him to take a job as a criminal justice teacher and baseball coach at a Christian high school. With his cop mentality challenging his students, James struggles through experiences with an unsupportive principal, a guidance counselor with a secret, and rebellious students. But when his best option seems to be quitting, a student challenges him to begin the investigation that will change his life, and those of his students, forever. Written by Rich Romano

Excellent Movie
15 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Investigator is an excellent movie that everyone should see....and bring your children too. It is a movie of real hope and inspiration. It is a real life story about a cop that looses hope as result of "life" and then finds inspiration through teaching at a school. Don't want to give to much away! There are many real life lessons that everyone can take and learn from. It is a mainstream film although it is categorized as a Christian film. Don't let that sway you one way or another. It is about "REAL LIFE" no matter your beliefs, religion, political stance, etc. It is nice to be able to see a film that has a positive message during a time in our lives that has a lot of challenges and obstacles. Thumbs up to screen play writer, Rich Romano, the producer, Nicole and all the cast, crew, etc. I highly recommend this movie. Kudo's to all.
