Set in the rustic Mid-Western town of One Fall, the film tells the story of a man who miraculously survived a terrible fall from a spectacular 200 foot- high precipice that is the area's major attraction. After recovering, he abruptly abandoned friends and family and disappeared without explanation. The secret he couldn't share with them was that, while recovering, he had suddenly developed the power to heal others. Tired of running away, he returns home after a long absence and decides to use his gift -- but not altruistically. If people pay him, he will cure them. Though he appears to be doing the right thing, he is doing it for for all the wrong reasons, and risks driving away anyone who ever loved or trusted him. As his moral crisis peaks, he must figure out why he survived his fall, and what he is really meant to do with his life. —Anonymous
Watch Your Step as You "Fall" in Love With 'One Fall'
One Fall tells the story of James Bond (I love this reminds me of a name pun I employed in one of my screenplays), played by Marcus, who miraculously survived a 200 foot fall. After a very brief recovery (that's an understatement), he disappeared from the city of One Fall without explanation. He even left behind his beautiful fiancé. He later returns to One Fall to face the music and use the gift he undeniably has. However, healing people doesn't come cheap. There's that moral dilemma I was talking about two paragraphs above. What would you do if you had this power? Would you exploit it or use it for greater good? James wrestles with this and more as people all around him, even loved ones, start to push him away. They can't understand him. To them, the man who fell never came back. James must come to grip with who he is, why he survived that fall and what he is meant to do in this world with his gift. Again wow! The story is not only profound in my opinion, but very powerful, deep and touching. (Read the full review at whysoblu dot com)
