“The Turnaround Movie” is a story about a young guy name Marquise, who is raised by his godmother Debra after losing both of his parents as a youngster. Marquise has a God-given writing ability that he overlooks due to hard times. It’s because of these hard times that he finds himself torn between a life of crime with his cousin D-Rock or living a Godly life, which includes his writing ambitions. He ends up getting pulled in two different directions. Ultimately, a tragic event lands him in a dangerous position where he is forced to choose between good and evil.
“The Turnaround” is a film that powerfully demonstrates that change—and change for the better—is possible! The characters are richly portrayed, and scenes about the temptation to do wrong, as well as the options to do what is right, are clearly distinguished. It focuses on the choices people make, along with the reminder that with those choices come consequences.
A young man named Marquise is interested in a pastor’s daughter named Tiffany, but he needs to get his life in order. In the meantime, Tiffany and her father have several disagreements as he wants to help guide her life, but Tiffany feels as if his church has always come before her and her needs. Marquise is pulled into drug trafficking by a man named D-Rock, and things definitely get worse before they improve. But this film does a good job in showing what a little faith can do.
We are pleased to award “The Turnaround” our Faith-Friendly Seal for ages 12-plus. The title describes what this movie is all about—a turnaround, when necessary, is possible.
