“Over My Head” is a Christian romance/comedy that tells the story of Nathan Edwards, a rich, spoiled college graduate who finds himself the guardian of his younger siblings after their parents’ untimely death. Heir to the family fortune and his father’s thriving business, he is immature and unprepared. Trying to please his bossy girlfriend and school administrators, he cycles through stereotypical nannies and trips over the girl of his dreams. Sarah is everything his spoiled girlfriend is not. She is beautiful, funny, brave and spiritual—and a match for his feisty siblings. Sarah’s unspoiled love for them and her godly courage to protect them at the risk of her own life compels Nathan to examine his life and choices. Realizing they need more, they invite themselves to church with Sarah, where they discover the power and love of Jesus to bring healing and direction into their lives.
Living in an apartment, Nathan has been doing whatever he wants, and to him, life is good. But when asked to take care of his siblings while his parents travel, it is not his idea of fun. He has no clue that it will turn into a long-term commitment and responsibility.He discovers that becoming the head of this household is not easy. Finding nannies, cooking, and just helping his little brother and sister is overwhelming—until his friend’s cousin comes into his life. Sarah is so different than anyone he has ever met. As things change in his siblings, he realizes that something needs to change in his life also. This is a story of a young man’s challenges in life and how one young woman helps him see that believing in the Lord can change everything. The movie is a comedy, but it portrays how the influence of being a good Christian can help others. The Dove FaithFriendly Seal for 12-plus is awarded to “In Over My Head.”
