Storyline

When 20-year old Nathan Burr (Bradley Dorsey) loses his career and his girlfriend, he questions his purpose in life. Compounding his struggle, Nathan grew up in a foster home and never met his birth mother. He sets out on a quest to find his mother and somehow come to terms with her rejection of him. His journey begins by flying to the city where he was born. Upon his arrival, Nathan checks into a hotel and meets Mave (Della Reese) the hotel's housekeeper. Encouraged by Mave's wisdom and the help of hotel guest Shelly (Kristen Renton), Nathan finds the address of his mother, Linda Dickson (Erika Eleniak). Linda is a social worker who agonizes over the decision she made with Nathan 20 years ago. In an effort to admonish the guilt of giving up her son, Linda is caught up in the life of a teenage mother-to-be, Tori Ammons (Erin Sossoman), who is conflicted by the decision to abort her baby. When Nathan gathers the courage to meet his mother, he uncovers a terrible secret that totally ... Written by Anonymous

Pretty appalling
10 June 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I sat down to watch this on the TV with a nice bottle of wine with my wife, expecting it might be interesting based on some of the reviews I'd read on a certain streaming internet provider.

What I didn't expect was a commercial for the invisible guy in the clouds up there. We watched about thirty minutes of this before the god stuff started appearing at regular intervals. That was a little worrying but we ploughed on until the supposed social worker spoke and acted in a way that was a million miles away from reality and would get her fired on the spot. At that point we pressed stop.

Look, if you believe in a particular myth and want to make movies about it then all well and good. Please feel free to tell of his almighty plan etc, but when you do PLEASE let the rest of us know that it's a glorified plug and not a serious attempt at movie making. No matter what you think of the movie itself, it's a pretty low tactic to pretend it's something it's not.

To all those involved I thank you for your future improved behaviour.
