Based on the best selling book by medium Chico Xavier, the film tells the story of Andre Luiz, a successful doctor who experiences an enlightening spiritual awakening after his death. When he wakes up in the spiritual world, he embarks on a new journey of self-discovery and transformation, from his first days in a dimension of pain and suffering, until when he is rescued and taken to the spiritual Astral City. With magnificent art direction and special effects that have never been seen before in a Brazilian production, and featuring an amazing score by composer Philip Glass, the film brings to the screen what life is like at the Astral City that hovers in the upper layers of the Earth's atmosphere.

Near the beginning there is a scene of the main character in some place...is it Hades, Hell, purgatory, where? It is not a scene children should watch ...nor elementary children. Teens, definitely yes. They'd probably actually love it.
Then the story goes from this dark and soul searching agonizing place of remembering where regardless the injury, there is no dying, to another place as 1 people in white clothing (not robes) come and pick up these people one at time and take them to a 'triage' sort of place inside a stone wall city. They clean them up, and heal their wounds with just the touch of the hands in the air just above the wound. And for medicine they are given a glass of PURE CLEAR WATER. When the wounded and sick are better, they leave and go into the most beautiful city and housing developments I've ever seen. And as these peoples all ages mingle in and out of their daily lives...you get to hear the conversations of one household. A not so happy teen for being there dead, missing out on her teen years on earth, and her grandmother (whom they both remember each other) and a few other people.
I won't tell more...but it's totally worth to stop, back track along the way and read every word of the closed captions and also to take in this amazing city. The scene on the front cover? I don't remember that. But you'll be amazed at this city...and may even want to go there now.
I found nothing that contradicts the Bible. And I was some years ago married to a minister for over 25 yrs....I've done my fair share of ministry. This passes the test. I think this movie can be equally appreciated by Christians and non-church people.
Don't take my word....check it out and be prepared. It's truly awesome.
