Synopsis

Limited Theatrical Release – Miles Montego (Ja Rule) has it all – cars, boats, good looks, mansion, money, women, but more importantly, he has a past. Miles is a retired high level drug trafficker who is now completely legitimate.

Even though Miles has turned over a new leaf, the DEA can’t seem to let him out of their sights. Miles’ only downfall is that he is extremely loyal to his circle of friends and former colleagues who are not retired from the business. Struggling to stay on the right side of the law, Miles meets the girl of his dreams but she’s not the usual type of girl that he’s used to dating.

Vanessa (Adrienne Bailon) is a church girl in every sense of the word. They are tested to their last ounce of faith and strength in God and each other.

Dove Review

This movie is timely, contemporary, yet shares a wonderful old message: God can change people’s lives! Miles Montego has a past which includes drug trafficking, womanizing, and violence. Yet when he meets Vanessa Leon his life is changed and in spite of himself he is drawn to her faith in God. This remarkable movie is based on a true story.

The characters in this story go through a lot as Miles attempts to leave his past behind. There is a death to contend with and a close call for one of the main characters following an automobile accident. Yet keeping faith in God is the overriding theme of this powerful story. It is a love story in two ways, its the story of a man that falls in love with a woman and one of a man realizing that God loves him.

We are more than happy to award this inspiring movie our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages twelve plus. It features fine actors and a terrific theme centering on God’s forgiveness and love as well as the love between a man and a woman. This one should not be missed.
