Worthwhile Viewing
22 May 2017 | by dante-69329See all my reviews

A faith based film loosely tied to the Old Testament story of Ruth and Naomi, but without overwhelming the viewer with the proselytizing dialogue that promotes an agenda for members of the choir, rather than a diverse audience. The acting and the characterizations are excellent. You have your good people striving to overcome what life throws at them, who persist to do what's right in the face of mounting obstacles. And then you have the villains who bear all the typical human traits of avarice, greed and power who stand to profit from eliminating those that stand in their way. You cheer on the sidelines for the decent people to win out and hope that the selfish ones get their comeuppance--its that good. Its a hopeful and eventually a joyful movie could possibly affect even the most cynical viewer. Give it a look.
