In this film inspired by true events, successful author/illustrator Samantha Crawford is living a charmed life, until her husband is murdered. She’s plunged into despair, and loses her faith. It’s only after an unexpected meeting with a childhood friend, Joe, that she begins to feel a faint glimmer of hope. As she sees the impact Joe has on so many people, her heart is opened to new possibilities. But when she is pulled back into her husband’s murder case, her newfound hope will be tested.
This movie will inspire you to walk on the clouds! That’s really the theme as Samantha Crawford is reminded of the book she once told her husband she wanted to write. A story about a little bird that encountered the storms of life but by walking on the clouds learned that the sun still shines above the clouds. Samantha forgets this for a time after her husband dies by being shot during a robbery. Her husband was a good man who occasionally handed out two dollar bills to people to remind them that love is like a two dollar bill, there are plenty of them around but it’s rare to see them. He made the point that love should not be hoarded or hidden.
Samantha gets to the point of despair and actually puts a gun under her chin in an alley and is close to taking her own life when an event takes place right in front of her which changes her life. She helps out some needy kids and is reunited with her best friend ever, a school mate named Joe. Joe is battling for his life as he is on dialysis but he keeps a great attitude and reaches out to hurting kids. He once had an experience with God, in prison, and he has never been the same since.
This movie touches the emotions, lifts the spirits, and speaks to everyone who is going through the “storms of life”. Samantha’s hope is renewed by film’s end although we won’t give the details away. The movie includes some nice humorous moments too such as when a city boy milks a cow on a farm and gets sprayed in the face with the milk. See this one soon and you just might feel like walking on the clouds yourself. We recommend this movie for ages twelve plus due to a few sophisticated themes and moments of violence. But the film’s remarkable message of hope is inspiring.
