Dove Review

This DVD shows that lives can be changed by the power of Christ. Tim is a man who takes drugs and sells drugs and is searching for a deeper meaning to life. He is also searching for his father whom he has never met. He meets a young man named Rajam who is a former Hindu and now a Christian. God lays Tim on Rajam’s heart and he constantly helps Tim out of jams including giving him a place to stay and feeding him.

Tim struggles with the concept of God but Rajam’s loving kindnesses wear him down. This inspiring movie is recommended for ages twelve plus and we are pleased to award it our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal. Although there is some drug use in it, such as the snorting of cocaine, there is a strong redemptive theme and a drug user becomes a Christian by film’s end.
