Beautiful and precocious Rivka is a twelve-year-old Jewish girl who believes in Jesus. She and her father attend a Messianic Jewish congregation in their community. But when her father suddenly dies, Rivka's life changes forever. She ends up moving in with her traditional Jewish relatives and attending their synagogue. From her stormy relationship with her uncle, to a meeting with the synagogue's senior rabbi, to the attention of the cutest boy in the synagogue, Rivka learns life lessons that stir her faith to new levels, touching the hearts of those whose lives she has reluctantly impacted. "The Sound of the Spirit" is the never-before-told story of a young girl caught in the crossfire of strong feelings between two faith communities. It's told with humor, compassion, and grace.Written by
When Marty and Sydney are to meet in the café, a little girl seated with two women in the background has her hair down most of the time but in one instance her hair is in a ponytail just before Sydney arrives. See more »
Very few movies have the ability to touch people of all backgrounds while sharing a message of hope. This movie accomplished this while being entertaining.The subject matter is powerful in a time when more families are blending faiths and dealing with the issue inherent in this blending. The plot move fast enough to be engaging and slowly enough to allow the viewer to come to terms with the twists happening in each scene. I look forward to seeing more work by this team and hope that more films are released in the near future. As the team works together they will make the small changes that will help them make the adjustments that will close the gap between this excellent first film and the work of more experienced companies.
