Storyline

Based on the Conversion of Paul. Sara is at the top of her game. She has the chance to be chosen for an elite summer tennis program, but her hopes are dashed unexpectedly by the one person no one likes - Colton. Colton is at the bottom of life, constantly leading others away, hurting people, giving no one respect, and making fun of other teens for going to church, but then his parents pray for some intervention in his life. When he's partying one night, Colton ends up in a car wreck with Sara, and goes through an experience that changes him, but facing life after you've done everything wrong can sometimes be the hardest step, and Colton must find a way to prove to everyone - especially to Sara - that he's changed.

Not good, and not bad enough to be interesting.
16 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

This movie is so ridiculously heavy handed and preachy. The dialog is ridiculous. There might have been a line in the movie somewhere that didn't sound completely artificial, but if there was I didn't hear it. It reminded me of a long, low quality public service announcement made by a local government channel. The characters are one-dimensional cardboard cutouts. The actors are not good, but you can't blame them too much, because the material they have to work with is so bad that they never had a chance. The plot must have been written by a home-schooled scriptwriter who imagined what actual high school must be like. There's nothing good about this movie. I know the creators thought they were trying to send a good message, but watching this movie just makes me want to punch someone. Don't waste your time.
