This is a movie about hope! Lynna (Tressa Ohler) is a middle-aged woman who learns she is dying of cancer. She contacts her childhood friend Jen (Sandra Dee), whom she hasn’t seen in a while. Jen comes to visit and it’s a good thing. Lynna’s husband Dave (Paul Presly) is a jerk, bad-mouthing her and acting as if she should continue to wait on him despite her illness.
Jen has a hard time understanding how Lynna can be a Christian. In Jen’s mind God has abandoned Lynna, and Jen shows anger at God, expressing her unhappiness to Him. Yet the tide turns and later, near the end, when Lynna is a bit discouraged, Jen finds God and soon the situation is reversed and she encourages Lynna. Ultimately, they both realize that God is always with us and we are never truly alone.
We are pleased to award this movie our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages twelve plus. It does a good job looking at that big question: Why? It features Scripture to help answer the question.
