The Path of the Wind


After serving a ten year prison sentence, all Lee Ferguson wanted to do was return to his hometown and live a quiet life. Joe Nelson, the owner of the local market, offers Lee a job, believing everyone deserves a second chance. One night while collecting carts Lee witnesses a man assaulting a woman. Even with the fear of returning to jail, Lee intervenes to save Katie. Lee’s desire to be left alone and lead a quiet life has been altered.

Eric and Tina are young co-workers of Lee’s, who have a stormy on-again, off-again relationship. Tina sees Lee and his money as her ticket out of the small town. In an effort to help Lee heal, Katie plans a surprise trip for him. However, as Tina continues to turn up the heat in her pursuit of Lee, Katie begins to suspect Lee and Tina are more than just co-workers. When a mysterious stranger knocks on his door, Lee is suddenly confronted with the choices he long ago made. He must now decide to what length is he willing to go to seek redemption.

Dove Review

Starting over is never easy and sometimes the hardest things in life are forgiveness and redemption. This is an intriguing story of one man’s journey into the world after being in prison for ten years, due to a bad choice he made when he was younger. Lee is now trying to begin a new life. He returns to the house he grew up in and must find a job. The one thing that is hard for him is to find a way to forgive himself for his past.

But as a relationship begins between Katie and Lee their pasts come to light along with their differences in what they believe in. Their relationship is challenged by people around them, their own feelings and their faith.

This is a story of forgiveness and redemption not only from others but also for one’s self through God. This movie also portrays some of the misguided views that some people have regarding Evangelical Christians, religion and faith. The story will make the viewer think of the important things in life because it may change at any given moment. We award our Dove Seal to this film for ages of twelve and older.
