| An inspiring and touching film
Clearly it's a low budget film, with some technical flaws, but it is so inspiring! I see that some critics and reviews are calling it a Christian film, though I would argue after seeing it twice, this is a film about hope and inspiration. The message is clear, no matter how low you get, no matter how far you fall, you can always find hope and pull yourself up. Clyde Thompson never gave up. If he can rise out of the ashes, so can anyone. This is a man who found a faith, a love, and a calling... you don't have to pigeon hole that into a genre... it's just an incredible story!
