Storyline

In this modern day retelling of the timeless Prodigal Son Parable, young Jacob is tired of living on the family farm, submitting to the rules of his Father, Mr. Abraham. One day he demands an early inheritance from his father, who shocks his young son by agreeing to give it to him. So, he heads to the big city doing things his way without restraint, and for a while he does well-surprisingly well. He takes huge business risks and converts his small fortune into a big fortune, despite his extremely flamboyant lifestyle that attracts the wrong women, including seductive Laura, whose rich boyfriend Frank is often dangerously nearby. Jake had it all: money, ladies, prestige-but then-he loses it all and just when he things he's hit bottom the bottom drops some more- until he is eating out of dumpsters and eventually ends up living in a literal pig pen. Coming to his senses he heads home, determined to work in an entry level position for his dad, who surprises him once again by running to ... Written by Gerald McGlothlin

Finally a clean movie that actually teaches a life lesson!
17 June 2014 | by grfld_loverSee all my reviews

It may not be as much of an action packed! with explosions!! and superheros!!! movie as we have grown accustom to recently, but it is defiantly worth the watch. It still grows with suspense while teaching important life lessons that everyone should be able to relate to in one way or another.

There should be more movies and stories like this one that can entertain you while still having substance that an adult or young adult can follow. It tells a story and keeps attention without breasts, sex or special effects.

I would recommend this movie for everyone to see!
