Common Chord


After the tragic death of his ex-girlfriend, Kyle Foster struggles to accept the responsibility of being a father to the young daughter, Teigan, who they had together. Amidst pressure from Teigan’s grandfather Bill for legal custody and Kyle’s desire to pursue his dreams of being a professional musician, he strives to find his way.

As the details of their complex history emerge, the pain and resentment Kyle and Bill feel for each other blinds them to the love they share for the little girl who connects them. As their unwillingness to reconcile threatens to tear her away from both of them forever, their journey becomes an odyssey of redemption, commitment and forgiveness as they discover what is most important in their lives.

Dove Review

Here is a dramatic story of two men that have lost the women in their lives and now fight over the one thing they still have in common, Teigan. It is a tale of how personal feelings can get in the way of seeing clearly what is best for a child that both men love. In this case both men are divided up as the grandfather and the other one is the father. These two don’t realize that they actually need each other to raise this young girl who loves them both.

This film brings to light the important lessons about helping one another in today’s world, to see how to put personal differences away when it comes to children, and that love and forgiveness is in everyone’s best interest, especially when children are involved. We award “Common Chord” the Dove “Family-Approved” 12+ Seal due to the mature issues.
