Heart of the Country


Film Description:

Heart of the Country is a modern day retelling of the famous “Prodigal Son” story told through the eyes of Faith – a prodigal daughter.

With her husband jailed for Wall Street-based fraud, Faith has to leave behind her luxury life in New York to return home to North Carolina and the widower father and dutiful older sister she left behind. Together, they have to deal with the buried emotions of sudden death of Faith’s mother years ago, and learn to be a family again.


“Sometimes To Go Forward, You Have To Go Back”


Like the Prodigal story, Heart of the Country is a tale of a father’s unconditional love. He simply wants a relationship with his children, and once that relationship is restored, he begins to create healing for his broken daughter. Her marriage has to be rebuilt, her belief in herself, and her peace with her mother’s death all come together through the quiet, selfless guidance of her loving father.

The novel, written by Rene Gutteridge from the original screenplay by filmmaker John Ward, takes us from the glamor of Manhattan to the open beauty of the fields of rural Columbus County, North Carolina as the timeless tale of the Prodigal Son is reborn!

Release Date: (DVD) December 3, 2013
