Help bring King’s Faith to our theater

Thanks to Charles for the head’s Up……

Please watch the trailer at (you’ll have to cut and paste to your browser) and then, if you would like to see this movie shown in Jackson, please click on the link below.  Evidently, it takes at least 500 “demands”. If we can reach that goal the filmmakers will bring the movie to a theater nearby. It’s really simple, you can do it in 30 seconds, just follow this link:

Film Synopsis:

Brendan King is a foster kid who grew up on the wrong side of the law graduating from five-finger discounts and fights on the playground to drug-dealing and gun-running as a member of the multi-racial gang called Avenue D. Arrested in a federal raid when he was fifteen and imprisoned for three years until his parole at eighteen, Brendan has found a relationship with God and with it he has turned his life around. Upon his release, he moves in with a new foster family and starts attending high school in an affluent suburb near the city where he grew up.

Now on the outside, Brendan vows to keep things on track. He works hard at his studies, lands an after school job and joins The Seekers, a faith based teen group that works on community service projects. On the way home from work one evening, he comes upon a car accident and saves a girl from a burning wreck. The girl, Natalie Jenkins, is a very popular teen at his school. Along with being a captain of the cheerleading squad, she is student council president, and at the top of her class in academics. The accident makes front page news and thrusts both of them into the local spotlight; he for being the gangster turned hero, she for drugs that were found in her car by the police. When Natalie is sentenced to court ordered community service with The Seekers, she finds herself placed on the same project as Brendan – tutoring kids in a foster home downtown.

At first, Natalie is determined to finish her community service hours as quickly as she can and get back on track with her life. But after spending time with Brendan and the foster kids, she finds herself looking inward. It leads her to reveal to Brendan a terrible secret she has been hiding, something that has kept her from a relationship with God. Through Brendan’s support, Natalie starts to discover faith and with it, a deeper purpose. Brendan is finding something as well… acceptance into this new world. And Natalie’s a huge part of it.

This awakening of faith and her relationship with Brendan isn’t met with open arms from Natalie’s parents or her friends. They pressure her into taking a step back, convincing her to reevaluate things, abandoning Brendan and the community project in the process. However, distancing herself only makes her understand what she wants even more. But, is it too late? Members from Brendan’s old gang have arrived looking for a substantial quantity of drugs that their former leader hid before he was killed – the location of which they are sure Brendan knows, despite his repeated attempts telling them otherwise.

Now with the gang threatening to hurt Natalie and his new family, Brendan must take increasingly drastic measures that begin to shatter his faith driven life. In a taut climax, Brendan runs away and confronts his former friends, setting off a devastating chain of events that could destroy everything he’s built his new world upon.

Brendan has seen a lot in his 18 years, most of it not good. Growing up in the foster care system, Brendan spent most of his life on the fringes of society. His former gang provided the only loyalty, stability, and sense of belonging that he had ever known, but eventually that world left him utterly alone once more, incarcerated, lost, and confused. While imprisoned, Brendan found faith and with it a renewed hope and sense of purpose. But keeping his faith once he regains his freedom is more of a challenge than when he was locked down, as new opportunities, new friends, and a new future clash directly with old temptations, old friends, and a past that he can’t seem to escape.
