Storyline

Meghan Doherty is a young, talented executive who neglects her mother and close friends to focus on one goal MAKING MONEY. After closing a multi-million dollar deal Meghan is asked by Mr. Randolph Whitaker (her boss/CEO) to close a deal of a lifetime. She's taking her talent to the Mojave Desert in hopes of getting a Christian land owner to turn over his land before auction. With a 100 million dollar potential deal looming, there is nothing that will stand in the way of her getting what she needs to further her career. Not even GOD? Over a period of 6 days Meghan goes through spiritual transformation (fish out of water) calling on her favorite investor to help save the Land. Written by Cecil Chambers

This is a keeper!

In this flick, star Jenn Gotzon plays a successful investment banker who receives an assignment that forces her to question whether the financial victories in her life are worth the cost of precluding a life of real love. Her idea of expressing love is to write a big check or buy an expensive present. The mission, should she decide to accept it, is to discover the importance of relationships, especially one with God.

The acting was very good. Of course, Jenn Gotzon was stellar, but she had lots of help. The rest of the cast, which seemed to be comprised of all Hollywood actors, delivered satisfactory performances, which we should expect from a team coming from the fiercely competitive secular world of acting. Gib Gerard, one of the stars, features a pair of intense eyes, which I discovered through IMDb research that he inherited from his mother, Connie Sellecca. I especially enjoyed the performances of Stephanie Barnes and Michael Toland. I think Stephanie, who was performing in her first feature film, has a bright future. This is the kind of acting that I expect from most Indie Christian films in the near future. God will either enhance and anoint the skill set of those currently acting in Indie films, raise up His children who are not getting the opportunity to act now, or will pull people from the Hollywood ranks to deliver his messages. The days when "Christian films" are noticeably substandard will come to an end as the genre and personnel involved mature, although some people may be reticent to acknowledge that rise to excellence. This movie is a good example of that maturation process.

Jenn Gotzon's husband, Chris Armstrong, did an admirable job as the director of his first feature film. The cinematography was excellent. The mountain desert features some wonderful sunrises and sunsets, and the DP of this film captured them both in addition to awesome skies and landscapes. The music is good, but mostly stays in the background, where it should be. The plot certainly was not original, but had some good twists. The story presents a good balance of faith, humor, emotion, stimulating dialogue, and romance. What is there not to like if you're a believer in a sovereign Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ? If you're not, this wonderful movie might rub you the wrong way, not because it is not tastefully done, but because some people are offended by the gospel of love no matter how it is presented. If you're in the ranks of those offended by Jesus, you need to spend some time in God's Country.
