True Faith
22 June 2019 | by dejacSee all my reviews

This is the true story of a man, who at the age of 11, had a bicycle accident & died on the way to the hospital. He was revived & lived to tell of his journey to heaven, his meeting with God & the evil spirits around him that interfere in his life. The directorbof the film is a friend & neighbor who documents this man's journey through life & his relationship with Jesus Christ.
