Excellent movie with real feeling
This movie was produced as a Billy Graham evangelistic tool, shown in theatres nationwide for free, followed by the typical altar calls and evangelistic follow-ups of Billy Graham's organization.
It was really well-made and featured a few decent actors and actresses. The plot wasn't just "Get Saved or Go to Hell"- it deals with youth issues, nuclear pollution and environmental issues and political activism, the ego's which some executives are prone toward and its effect on their often-neglected families, and young romance between two people of somewhat different backgrounds and views coming to terms with their well-enacted relationship.
It's a well-balanced movie, not just a stereotypical religious pitch so often associated with Billy Graham by the general public.
Also featured is music by Randy Stonehill, who later made a name for himself as a well-known Christian guitarist and musician and contemporary of Larry Norman, the originator of the "One Way" hand-sign which symbolized the early Jesus Movement.
Good for the whole family, and especially youths dealing with their identities and quest for spiritual meaning.
