Dove Review

This story follows the vision of Angus Buchan, and how he had a dream as a child to preach to thousands of people and many years later it came to pass as he literally preached to thousands at the 2010 Mighty Men Conference. This plot follows the story of several men including a man named Lucky that attempts a carjacking but is given a second chance by the man he tried to rob. The man takes him to the Mighty Men Conference. Another man, named John, loses a son and undergoes great hardship but makes the most important decision of his life.

We see a minister’s son struggle with drinking and a prodigal lifestyle but his mother and father do not give up on him. This realistic and gritty story shows that hope is always the best option. We are more than happy to award this movie our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages twelve plus. Watch this one with someone that is struggling. It just might change his/her life.
