So Help Us God


Grandpa Will, who carries around his wife’s urn, has only one wish: to find the tree where he fell in love with his soul mate. His memory of the tree’s whereabouts have since faded, but luckily, his 15-year-old granddaughter unveils a series of forgotten love letters that give clues to the tree’s location. The dysfunctional family embarks on a road trip to find the tree and finally put their beloved wife and grandmother to rest. Encountering one disaster after another, they begin to work together as a team and, through God’s guidance, learn to function as a loving family.

Dove Review

“So Help Us God” reminds the viewers that if they are struggling, they can always move forward. This film shows ordinary people dealing with extraordinary challenges, but Grandpa Will, one of the main characters, overcomes these struggles because of his faith. He is a rock to his family and a man of wisdom. His son, Edwin, loses his job after being employed for 21 years, and Edwin’s wife has Parkinson’s disease. Grandpa helps calm her down when she has tremors and helps keep her stable. He is a comfort to Edwin as well.

We are pleased to award this wonderful film our Faith Friendly Seal for all ages. This movie is well worth the time it takes to watch it. It has earned five Doves, our best rating.
