Rachel is a high-powered executive striving to climb the corporate ladder, however; suddenly finds herself thrown into an emotional crisis when she discovers she is pregnant. Having to choose between her blossoming career, versus a life on unexpected sacrifice, her world seems to be closing in around her, as her spiritual perspectives start to become challenged as well. This riveting and heart-wrenching film underscores the reality of God’s compassion for every human life, from the disabled, to the autistic, to those who perished in the Holocaust, and especially the unborn, and motivates us all to be a voice for Love, Life and for all those “dying to be heard!”
“Dying to Be Heard” is a powerful film, based on true events. There are three stories that tie in together as the movie progresses. One story is about a dying man named Jordan, who was a fantastic accordion player and has struggled with autism. The other plot that ties in is about Jordan’s father, a Jew who survived the Holocaust, and it should be noted that death camp scenes are featured in the film. The third subplot is about Rachel, a businesswoman who works hard and has just been promoted. She goes to a bar to celebrate her promotion with her girlfriends and ends up getting drunk, having sex (not shown) and winds up pregnant. The father of the child wants nothing to do with her. The voice of the unborn child becomes one of the voices, dying to be heard.
The viewer will have to watch the film to learn how it all ties in together, but rest assured it does. There is a strong theme of redemption in the movie. Those who have ever felt betrayed or forsaken will greatly appreciate this film. “Dying to Be Heard” should be seen by viewers everywhere.
