Every choice you make defines who you are and who you will become. Thomas, influenced by the media and friends he surrounds himself by, begins to see his life deteriorate in a slow fade. And everything looks lost until he finds a mentor in the most unlikely of people. But has he slipped to far too make it back out?
"Slow Fade" is a remarkable story about the possibility of change! It is not only the title of this movie but the term refers to sin that draws people in like a slow fade and will destroy them. In this film Thomas (James Pendleton) is a rebel and displays self-destructive behavior, even pushing aside the girl he has dated as he sinks deeper and deeper into darkness. When he mugs an older man named Charlie his conscience bothers him until he finally talks with his mother about it and turns himself in. He goes to Charlie's home to take his wallet back and to apologize and he learns that Charlie is a Christian who is willing to forgive him. Thomas doesn't know how to respond to this and Charlie begins to work on him and to witness about Christ.
This movie offers hope and inspiration. It warns about being cautious about various influences including video games and films. It is a faith-based message with the theme of God's love and forgiveness and we are pleased to award the film our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for ages twelve plus. Give this one a watch soon!
