An abused girl with a gentle soul and a belief in Jesus changes the life of a homeless veteran in this movie from writer-director Jefferson Moore. While the movie is uneven in quality, it is good to see a story with a character whose frank and open belief is a source of strength and guidance for her and an inspiration for others. I especially liked the way it portrays unconditional love as the core of her relationship with God. (NOTE: character abuses drugs and alcohol, child abuse, homelessness, some violence, corrupt officials)

  1. Really? Have you seen the reality of giving someone a hand up as opposed to a hand out? This was idealism at its best. Touching yes, but a fairy tale sadly.

  2. Thanks, Lora. I’d say aspirational and inspirational rather than idealistic, but there’s nothing wrong with any of those purposes. And sure, I’ve seen hand ups as well as hand outs, and always appreciate reminders like this one of the importance of both.

  3. I thought this was a very inspirational and touching movie. Only God knows whether it will be a hand up or a hand out. No one is beyond forgiveness and reconciliation! 🙂

  4. Mike, I liked the movie, as I said. It is a shame you did not watch it closely enough to benefit from its lessons about grace and kindness. Perhaps you should try again.
