Storyline

The backbone of the story is Angus Buchan - at the 2009 Mighty Men Conference - sharing his simple but rock solid faith with a few hundred thousand men. We experience his on-stage heart attack and the resulting personal insight he received from God regarding his own ministry. In the vast crowd we find three typical men - all in the process of being touched by the Holy Spirit through Angus's words. We find Andre Cloete - a twenty something man who became ensnared in alcohol abuse and a wasted life - due to his broken relationship with his 'strictly religious' and absent father. Then there is John Peters - a middle aged panel beater from Bethlehem who's business, family relationships and health have been spiraling down to the brink of collapse. Lastly we meet Lucky Nzimande - a young, black criminal who naively attempts to hi-jack the vehicle of two ex special-forces policemen en route to the Mighty Men Conference. The film tells the dramatic story of the three men's journeys and ... Written by Anonymous

Amazing, inspiring movie
17 June 2013 | by (Mullsjö, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed every minute of the movie. Yes, it is not perfect. No movie is. This is one of the best Christian movies i've seen in a while. Of course, this was aimed at an believing audience, but also for non- believers. I really enjoyed the performance of the actors, the beautiful settings and photography. The scenes were very well done, and beautiful looking scenes, especially in HD. I'd say it's a movie worth watching. Because the movie was so well done, i give it a 10 out of 10. I enjoyed it and i did not regret a second. I recommend this movie to everyone who believe in God, but also those who want to get inspiration and non-believers. This is a really good movie. I really liked Angus Buchan's speech and i love his other movie, "Faith Like Potatoes". A movie that also is worth watching. Both of the movies got great stories, both are based on true stories. But Faith Like Potatoes is my favorite, but i'd recommend you to watch them both and judge by yourself. Watch Faith Like Potatoes first and then this. 10/10
