Storyline

When newcomer Grácia Davis arrives in debate class, "undercover Christians" Chase and OB are challenged to take a stand for what they believe in. Grácia embodies warmth and confidence, making both friends and enemies. Her faith outlook on the world soon turns out to be less welcome in class than other ideas. As she confronts an institutional double-standard on freedom of speech, school faculty clash over a Christian teacher who has misstepped. All the while, Grácia reaches out to a fellow student caught in a destructive relationship. With growing affection for the friend he was once afraid even to call on the phone, Chase ultimately follows her courageous example and takes a tremendous personal risk to discover his own voice.

Good romantic movie touching on many Christian topics
20 September 2017 | by dolans-1See all my reviews

Great Christian movies that weaves many religious topics into an entertaining romantic drama. Touches quickly and lightly upon censorship of God in schools, evolution vs creation, dating vs courtship, teenage pregnancy, and abortion. You will fall in love Gracia and her infectious smile.
