Dove Review

“A Hope Without Walls” offers just what the title promises: hope. The story focuses on a homeless man named Jerry who influences a man named Derek. Derek recently learned his wife had an affair but then she went to a Bible study and is trying to turn her life around and she wants Derek to join her. Derek doesn’t feel he is ready for God but Jerry encourages him that God is just what he needs in his life. Derek helps feed Jerry so the two benefit from their brief friendship. When a man gives his life to save another, Derek sees God’s love in action and the moment for him to make his decision arrives.

This awesome short film makes a point that a person can influence others and often during a limited window of time. The theme of “Hope is a way of life” as one character says, is inspiring. We are pleased to award “A Hope Without Walls” our Family-Approved Seal for ages twelve plus. It demonstrates hope in a powerful way.
