The Lamp


Suffering from the loss of his only child, Stanley has secluded himself to a dark and lonely place. Sullen and without hope, he continues to hide from and neglect those he loves despite their attempts to reach out to him.

In what seems to be the final days of their already strained marriage, his wife Lisa is presented with a strange gift; an old oil lamp from a far off land. Along with the lamp comes a mysterious messenger and a question that causes them to search the depths of their hearts for what’s truly important in life…

If you could have anything you wanted, what would YOU wish for?

Dove Review

What would you ask for if you received 3 wishes, money? Would you ask for fame? For one family the answers aren’t that simple because real happiness isn’t measured by such trivial things. Life will always have struggles and trials — things you must endure to learn invaluable life lessons. You see, happiness is a decision based upon your priorities. The difference between needing something and already having it is to “just believe”.

This movie will have its audience rooting for a family to believe so that they can be happy and then make it so. Dove is pleased to award this heartwarming and uplifting movie our “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
