When a pastor is shaken by the visible faith of a street-corner preacher, he is reminded that true belief always requires action. His response ignites a journey that impacts everyone it touches in ways that only God could orchestrate.

Everything can change in an instant, and take a lifetime to unravel. Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships by extending and receiving God's grace. Offer The Grace Card, and never underestimate the power of God's love.

A movie for those who need more than a patent Hollywood story
This is a story about how people who live in flyover country are forced into the Hollywood box, by the media constantly force-feeding everyone through movies, music, videos, etc. And how that forms our definition of success. More specifically, it's how one can have their faith challenged by trying to fit into the world's mold. It may not have the best photography or a complex storyline that some may be looking for, but it may be one of the best faith-based stories I've seen in a while. It's no secret that Hollywood shies away from stories like this--had they embraced it, it may have had better photogenic qualities, etc. But then again, Hollywood would have put their "stamp" on it, so this is probably the best outcome. This is the story of how Miley Cyrus and her dad should have ended up, but unfortunately not so much. If you're looking for lots of swearing, things blowing up, and nakedness, then look elsewhere. Want a little challenge to your own faith, a little bit of drama that makes you feel good? Then this is for you.
