Storyline

Life can change in an instant, and turn your whole world upside down. And that is exactly what happens to firefighter Jeff Elliott and his wife Ruth who are living their dream in the golden Midwest; high school sweethearts, married with two beautiful and healthy children, family farm, horses, sports, church groups, the whole American Dream come true. And one winters day, teenage son Eric "Hoovey" Elliott collapses at high school basketball practice, is rushed to the hospital, and the doctors find a tumor the size of an orange at the base of his brain. They're down to hours-if surgery that risks the boy's ability to walk, talk, and perhaps even survive is not performed immediately, Hoovey's young life will end before it truly even begins. In a grueling 8-hour procedure, the tumor is removed. And he survives. But for the Elliott family, life and dreams will never be the same. Hoovey has to teach himself to walk again, to read again, to even see straight with two unbalanced eyes, covered... Written by James Barnes

Lead role....horrible acting
19 October 2018 | by yjudithSee all my reviews

If a movie of any kind is going to made about a teenager who overcomes incredible odds, could they have least picked someone with a little more depth?? Cody Linley couldn't act himself out of a wet paper bag. I loved the story and being as i watch a lot of faith based movies, I didn't find this one overly done with Christianity. This is a family who believes in God and leans on Him in times of trouble even when their whole world is crashing in on them. Period.
