Synopsis

Sisters Amber and Sam Bradshaw are offered an opportunity to chase their dreams of becoming musicians. As a tragedy shakes their family, they discover that the powerful bond and love they have can overcome anything.

Dove Review

Amber (Savannah Ostler) wants to chase down her passion for singing while her sister, Sam (Monica Moore Smith), isn’t sure what her dream is. The pair decides to ditch their mother’s controlling demands for Amber to try her luck at acting, so the girls plan a move to Nashville, Tennessee.

Before they can go, Amber passes away from aortic valve stenosis, a heart valve disease that she kept a secret from Sam. Hurt and confused, Sam spends weeks in thick fog, unsure of how life is supposed to unfold without Amber.

Later, she finds a journal that Amber made for her, a journal for Sam to chase down her own dreams. But after Sam discovers a song that Amber had written, Sam decides to perform the song in her sister’s honor.

Meanwhile, Sam faces backlash from her alcoholic mother and must navigate a kindled love for Amber’s old boyfriend.

Though Twice the Dream includes crude language and repetitive alcoholic scenes from the girls’ mother (portrayed negatively), family ties, forgiveness, and restoration rate this film Dove-approved for Ages 12+.

The Dove Take:

Though tragedy hits home for Amber and Sam, strong family ties win in the end.
