Dove Review

This movie shows that forgiveness is possible, even after a long time. A man named Ty had a falling out with his daughter twenty years earlier but she calls him after he has prayed for a while. They begin to slowly develop a relationship. The man who becomes known as Gramps develops an immediate relationship with his granddaughter but it takes a while to move forward with his grandson.

This movie features themes of forgiveness, hope, and the importance of family, not to mention a grandfather’s love. We are pleased to award this DVD our Dove Seal for ages twelve plus. This one features some important life lessons.
