Confronted with memories of camping with her family, she tries to find peace with her new surroundings and deal with her father's death.
I started this movie thinking it was a Christian film. There were Christian references but it was mainly a film of Mormon characters. That was disappointing since I am a Christian. I stuck with it though and all in all it wasn't a horrible movie.
I didn't notice a lot of Mormon evangelism. However, there were references to prayer and the existence of Jesus. There was a strong emphasize on the need for teamwork which was the main theme of the movie.
I think many people will enjoy this movie. It would be great for a family movie night. The acting is great, there's humor and friendship.
