Synopsis

For 16-year-old Sarah, life is not fun anymore. Hurting over the loss of her sister Lauren, Sarah has traveled a fast and furious road with her boyfriend Justin.

But that’s about to end. Sarah senses that there has to be more.

Enter Rebecca, a classmate whose defense of creation versus evolution reminds Sarah of her sister’s faith in God. With Rebecca’s leading, Sarah chooses a new direction.

In this heartwarming story of struggle, faith and redemption…Hope is everything.

Dove Review

This short drama manages to tell a lot of story in a brief amount of time. Sarah, the 16-year-old main character of the story, is dealing with some issues. This includes the death of her sister, her closest friend, who was tragically killed in an automobile accident.

Sarah struggles to get along with her parents, and she is pressured by her boyfriend to have a more intimate relationship than she is ready for. When the topic of creation is brought up in class by a student named Rebecca, young Sarah is reminded of the faith of her deceased sister Lauren. This leads to a conversation with Rebecca, and Sarah finds the faith of her sister. This is a nice story, simply told, and Sami Lyn Parman does a fine job as Sarah.

We gladly award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this DVD.
