Storyline

Feeling a lack of purpose in her life as her teenage children Emily and Max grow increasingly independent, and her husband, Mike, devotes most of his time and energy to his growing business, Anna Sparrow follows the advice of her Pastor and volunteers at the local food bank. While helping the disadvantaged, Anna meets Maria Sanchez. From very different backgrounds, the two women bond over their shared love for their families. As the women grow closer, Maria reveals her concern for her precocious, but lonely daughter Bella, who she fears is being bullied at school. At Anna's urging, her teenage daughter Emily takes Bella under her wings. Maria's husband, Hector, loses his job, and his ability to provide for his family. He falls into despair as he's unable to find work, and turns back to drinking. When he finds Maria at the Sparrow's house, he assumes she is cleaning houses. His pride overcomes him and demands she leave with him. Anna agrees to watch Bella as Maria leaves with Hector, ... Written by Kenneth Lemm

Poorly written, produced, directed. Multiple disconnected story lines
24 December 2016 | by jgray11111See all my reviews

This is a quasi "faith based" film in that the family pastor shows up twice and says a few cryptic sentences and a Bible is shown once or twice. There are a least two stories which never get resolved and the main story is about two close friends (of a couple of weeks). It appears the movie was shot on a low budget and half way through, they realized most of the money was gone so a hurry-up conclusion had to be concocted. I am afraid this is a charlatan attempt to cash in on the current desire for good, wholesome, faith-based movies and that Christian families will watch anything that pretends to be such. Find another use of your time.
