Welcome to Paradise
"Welcome to Paradise" is an inspirational family film about a preacher, Debbie Laramie (Crystal Bernard) and her son Hayden (Bobby Edner). They are sent from a big city church to the small town of Paradise, where Debbie finds a community in desperate need of direction and a town that turns its back on its neediest neighbors. She begins to build a new vision for her congregation that embraces everyone, even the poor and outcast, and the veil of indifference begins to lift. Debbie invites Trevor Goodman, (Lou Beatty, Jr.) an elderly black man living on the streets, to sing at the church service. As the church begins to embrace Debbie's methods, the congregation begins to find their own sense of inspiration, tolerance and consideration. Something happens that might cause the church's charter to be revoked.
