10-year-old Bart Millard lives with his mother and abusive father Arthur in Texas. One day his mother drops him off at a Christian camp where he meets Shannon. Upon his return from camp, Bart finds his mother has left and movers are removing her belongings. He angrily confronts his father, who denies that his abusiveness was the reason she left. Years later, in high school, Bart and Shannon are dating. Bart plays football to please his father, but is injured, breaking both ankles and ending his career. The only elective with openings is music class, so he reluctantly signs up..
Before Bart (J. Michael Finley) begins writing the title song, I Can Only Imagine, there is a guitar case in the background that says "I Can Only Imagine" on it. See more »
The timing based in the movie is supposed to be in 1999 when radio stations have an older system of the "Emergency Alert System" in place. At KMGL, they have a new blue digital EAS-CAP box called "Sage Digital Endec" which is incorrect for the timing of the movie because in 1999, Sage had a gray box called "Sage EAS Endec" in place, almost a decade prior to when they made the new blue emergency alerting encoders.

Let me ask you something Bart, what are you running from?
My dad. He, uh, he...
...he beat you, didn't he? Ya ain't got no poker face kid.
I carry that. I have to live with that, you know. I always will.
Then write about it. Stop running from it. Let that pain become your inspiration.

A good Christian movie.
A lot of Christians movie are badly acted and cheesy and this isn't one of them. This movie was well acted, had heart and had emotion. I love MercyMe and the song I Can Only Imagine and it's so great to see the story behind the song. I could relate to what Bart went through with his dad and I think a lot of people can relate to that. This movie had a really good message and I believe even non Christians will like it.
