Synopsis

“Seven Days Away” reminds us that it takes only a moment for one’s world to turn upside down. When Clayton recommits his heart to serve God after a tragic accident, his vow meets the ultimate test when his weekend in Mexico with friends turns into his worst nightmare. Kidnapped and held for ransom, he endures suffering and abuse. In the end, his faith, mixed with his Mother’s prayers, lead him to freedom and bring the light and hope of Christ into an impoverished community.

Dove Review

“Seven Days Away” is a loud-and-clear testimony to the power of the gospel. Young Clayton (Josiah Warren) is not ashamed of the gospel and is vocal about his trust in Christ. His father died while doing missions work, but that doesn’t stop Clayton on going to Mexico too. His mother doesn’t like the idea, as she is worried about him. He travels with a friend named Daniel that used to be close to the Lord but has backslidden. He wants to party when they arrive, while Clayton wants to minister to people. Clayton is kidnapped by some thugs, tied up in a shack. They call his mother, demanding ransom money. Clayton is shocked to see young girls who have been kidnapped, too, and sexually abused. Is there any way he can escape and help the girl that is being held captive near him? Will Daniel turn his life around? Does God really want Clayton to do missions work in Mexico?

This powerful movie is being awarded our Faith-Based Seal, meaning it has some strong content but contains a strong faith message. This movie makes it clear—the call of God isn’t always easy, but well worth it if one wants to make a difference in people’s lives.
