Left motherless by tragedy and abandoned by his father, high school senior Seth McArdle (Samuel Davis) has been put under enormous pressure to support his little sisters. At school, he endures the daily bullying of the football team. When he fights back, he’s singled out for punishment and assigned to an after-school work detail under the supervision of a reserved groundskeeper, Abel (Kevin Sorbo). Much to his surprise, Seth discovers that Abel may be the only one who truly understands his struggles. As dark times lure Seth towards desperate measures, the reluctant Abel may be the only person who can point him back towards the light.
This was an interesting Christian film. Towards the end you catch a glimpse as to what the Title of this film really is all about. I honestly didn’t put all the pieces together until about an hour later and then the light bulb came on completely. It’s intriguing.
The main messages of the film – we ALWAYS have a choice! The other message that is the right way is usually the hardest. That is how we realize what the right way is…that narrow path.
One of the best parts for me was when Seth is sitting at the bank and he asks what the loan officer likes. This is wisdom beyond his years – unfortunately this didn’t come into play during the actual interview but the idea was still there. Many doors open for people if they ask questions or bring up subjects that the other person is interested in. This is an important fact to remember in life…CONNECT with people whenever you can.
