Seventy Times Seven
Love is the greatest commandment of all. Especially when you are asked to love your enemy. “Seventy Times Seven” puts this scripture to the extreme test when David Anderson marries the love of his life and she is murdered. When the police come up empty handed, will David be charged with the murder of his own wife? When he goes on a mission to find her murderer, will there be more killing? How can love be found in shattered dreams? It can. Seventy times seven.
Josiah David Warren gives a strong performance in “Seventy Times Seven” as David Anderson, a young man who is madly in love and marries the woman of his dreams, Jacqueline (Tina Ballerina), only to lose her six months later when she is violently murdered. Who killed her? It becomes David’s obsession to find her killer and when a few pieces of evidence points to his sister-in-law, Jen, David refuses to consider any other possibility. But as his loving family and church friends remind him of the kindness of his sister-in-law, David begins to consider other possibilities. He doubts God’s love but those around him refuse to quit on him.
