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

uplifting family friendly film
14 September 2013 | by (St Petersburg) – See all my reviews

my husband and two teenagers attended the st petersburg screening of this amazing film and were all so inspired and moved by the story and the incredible acting. what a blessing to finally have a movie in the theaters that im not uncomfortable viewing with my kids! having the opportunity to meet the director and the producer made the experience all the more meaningful. and although this is a 'Christian' film - the well-portrayed sports sequences make it appealing to a much wider audience than just the religious right. i would highly recommend this movie to anyone who considers themselves a Christian or for families who want true family entertainment.
