Weak and Scattered
Verified purchase
This kept showing up as a movie I'd recently rented, of which I had no recollection. No kids in the house, so perhaps the dog did it. It sounded okay, so I rented it to see what I had allegedly rented before. After watching, I knew I would have remembered it for its low-quality script. It's a Christian-themed, made-for-tv movie that unfortunately equates with cheesy emphasis on forgiveness. It's not appropriate for children, and it's too dumbed-down for adults. Too scattered to deliver a strong message on any of its themes.

I am so glad we discovered this inspiring movie. Great message of faith, forgiveness, and perseverance. It's amazing that this brother and sister grew up to become well-adjusted adults after going through this horrible tragedy. God bless you, Leslie and Brooks. Thank you for sharing your story.

Moving, tearful, motivating, and unbelieveable forgiveness
Verified purchase
This true story is very moving. It makes you want to choose well, live well, make a difference in life. We aren't always in control, but we have power with our choices as this movie reminds us. It is a must see, especially for older kids (with their parents). This movie makes you sad, makes you mad, and encourages you to overcome and do something about it! I hope you enjoy it as much as my family.

I was friends with brooks Douglas. He is a great guy. I met him and his sister the night of their terrible ordeal at the hospital I worked at, brooks later came back to work there.

I didn't watch this all the way through. It almost seemed amateurish in its direction and production. Maybe we've all become spoiled by really good movies, I dunno...
