A movie about imperfect people in an imperfect world, trying to be a light in the dark to others.
17 September 2016 | by jrichey-90142See all my reviews

I watched this in the theatre with about 7 other people, it was a spiritual experience. It was really nice to see the struggles people go through and overcome, and how God on occasion picks you up and walks you past the point where you would fail.

It also just instilled in me a view of the Church as it ought to be, without walls. There was a horror flick a couple doors down, with people waiting to get in. I think that if they had watched this instead, they would have had a memorable night, and left with more love and a stronger bond towards their brothers and sisters on earth, instead of weaker one.

It's nice to see light amid the darkness. Hopefully the right person will walk into the theatre to check it out, and start their journey on the path that leads back home.
