Storyline

Everything can change in an instant - and take a lifetime to unravel. When Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, the ensuing 17 years of bitterness and pain erode his love for his family and leave him angry with God - and just about everyone else. Mac's rage stonewalls his career in the police department and creates a combustible situation when he's partnered with Sam Wright, a rising star on the force who happens to be a part-time pastor and a loving family man. Can they somehow join forces to help each other when it's impossible for either of them to look past their differences--especially the most obvious one? Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships and heal deep wounds by extending and receiving God's grace. Offer THE GRACE CARD - and never underestimate the power of God's love. Written by David G. Evans

User Reviews

best movie on race relations ever!
16 April 2012 | by bonniebo40See all my reviews

We finally got to watch this movie, after missing it for the box office opening night. Excellent movie! I cannot believe it was done in 28 days on a $200,000 budget....just goes to show you can produce quality film without spending millions! Schools show lots of fluff, idiotic and useless movies all the time. This movie should be required viewing at every middle school and high school...not for the subdued religious tones, but for the race relations for all of us. The shot in the end was an amazing message alone. I highly recommend it for all ages. My own sons, 11 and 14 watched it with us tonight and I intend to let them watch it as many times as they want to. This one is a good one to let all the messages of the movie sink into their hearts!
