Three brothers go to the mountains to release the ashes of their recently deceased father when they meet someone they never knew.
End of the Trail is a movie that follows the journey of three brothers after their father’s death to scatter his ashes in the place he requested. Each brother is at a different place in their faith walk, and the youngest brother is somewhat estranged from the older two. The two oldest head to their destination and frustratingly try to get their little brother to make it but his car is not working. By a miracle, a friend stops by his house right when he is trying to leave and is headed to the exact same destination. The friend offers to give him a ride, which makes him start to wonder about the reality of God.
As the three meet, the tension begins to rise and conflicts begin to surface that have been dormant for quite some time. The way the movie plays out gives the viewer a very real look at conflict resolution between adult siblings, the impact of one brother’s faith on the other two, and the ways that conflict resolution and freedom can unlock the future and allow them to walk freely into it.
It’s a beautiful story of reconciliation and shows how God can move and work through even the hardest things that life has to offer—definitely a hope-filled film, and it merits the Dove-Approved Seal for Ages 12+.
The Dove Take:
If you want to see the mysterious way God works amid wildly different lives in the same family, this might be the movie to see.
