Film Synopsis
Battling his own inner-demons, Jesse (Rusty Joiner: Last Ounce Of Courage, Dodgeball, “Days of Our Lives”) encounters a young, pregnant teen overcome with grief that, after an impulsive abortion, has her family blaming Jesse for more than just her final decision. Jesse’s wife Julia (Jocelyn Cruz: Strike One, This Is Our Time) must come to terms with her own choices and decide if she can support her husband as opposition mounts against him. Comedian Paul Rodriguez also stars as Virgil with James Russo as Pastor Gil.

My thoughts:

This was a very powerful movie and dealt with some sensitive topics. However, it is handled very well.

It shows many aspects of abortion, the before, after, the choices woman are faced with, how as Christians we need to be careful how we say things.

This movie also showed how afraid we can be as Christians to really stand up for what we know Jesus is calling us too. It seems easier to “pray” about it but never move. I believe we need to do both of those things.

Jesse and Julia finally talk about their past and I just wanted to yell, “That’s your testimony. That’s how you will reach these women.” When we hold on to what Jesus has done in our lives we might miss opportunities to help someone else. I believe God calls us to share our stories so we can help others overcome.

I loved how Jesse finds ways to connect with the community and ultimately wake up his church. We could all use a wake-up call.

A viewing of this movie was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
