Storyline

Twenty year veteran investigator Sergeant James Buanacore (Wade Hunt Williams) starts the most important investigation of his life when a drug bust goes tragically bad. The death of the apparent suspect forces James out of the job he loves and into retirement. When James' wife Stephanie (Nicole Abisinio) has a miscarriage, he is devastated and begins to wonder about and question his previously strong faith. Depressed and angry, James isolates himself until his brother (David Sanborn) encourages him to take a job as a criminal justice teacher and baseball coach at a Christian high school. With his cop mentality challenging his students, James struggles through experiences with an unsupportive principal, a guidance counselor with a secret, and rebellious students. But when his best option seems to be quitting, a student challenges him to begin the investigation that will change his life, and those of his students, forever. Written by Rich Romano

excellent movie based on true events
14 June 2017 | by vonna-05624See all my reviews

I think everyone can relate to a story like this. We all have trials and struggles. This is a wonderful true story of how faith interweaves into life events.....and how life events can cause us to doubt God's goodness. I loved it and thought Rich Romano did a fantastic job. Well worth watching. Very uplifting. I am not sure why the reviews are not as good as they should be but I am happy that Rich Romano took a risk and made this movie.
