Worth: The Testimony of Johnny St. James


Johnny St. James was a young Bible School student who lost his wife to a drunk driver. With his reason for living gone, Johnny lost his faith and turned to alcohol. Ten years later, Johnny is finally ready to get his life back on track. With his best friend Hickey (Eric Roberts) in tow Johnny attends his first AA meeting. He soon finds that his road to recovery is tested when he runs into the man who ran down his wife.

Dove Review

“Worth: The Testimony of Johnny St. James” is a thought-provoking story of faith, forgiveness, choices and redemption. Johnny has had everything that matters in his life taken away from him by a drunk driver and he is now set on revenge. He plans on taking that out on the man who killed his wife in the accident. However, he is confronted by others who have made mistakes that they regret and shown that only through forgiveness can he find true peace.

The drama all takes place in relative real time as Johnny and the man he despises talk about the past, the present and hope for the future. We are pleased to award this film our Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12 and over due to the mature issues dealt with in the movie.
