Dove Review

Everyone has a cross to bear in life and this movie wonderfully shows what can happen when one reaches out to God and asks His help to guide our destiny.

The story focuses on Erica Moses, who is homeless, and a tragedy that strikes due to her drinking and neglect. She loses her baby girl when she passes out from drinking. She finds redemption and love and the help of a woman named Joan (beautifully played by Kim Fields). Joan shows Erica tough love. This film features themes of perseverance, forgiveness, and learning how to forgive one’s self.

We are pleased to award this DVD our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages twelve plus, due to the adult themes. The acting is terrific. This movie has earned five Doves from us, and that’s our best rating.
