Nathan Clarkson wrote and produced this Christian film and actually was the main character in the movie named Sean. Sean is the son of a pastor who is played by Kevin Sorbo, from the movie God's Not Dead. Sean asks for his college funds and then disappears from his parents for two years, and enters the all too scary world of drinking and prescription pills. He also ends up using his money to buy a car, rent an apartment and live off the money from his parents. He has a horrible friend who is an enabler and every parent's worst nightmare. This friend is the one friend that our parents disliked us having growing up or the one that you dislike your children being friends with.
Sean is fighting hard to escape the life he envisions his parents and everyone else wants him to have and in this, he loses himself. It isn't until he meets a girl that he starts to evaluate where his life is. He is also prompted by his professor to have the class write the story of their life, where they are the main character and how their decisions can effect their story.
Sean also gets himself into a situation where he literally loses everything and has to get a job. It is quite similar to the parable in the book of Luke 15: 11-32 in the Bible, where the son asks for his share of the inheritance and then "squanders his wealth in wild living," (Luke 15:13) and is forced to get a job.
Without giving too much of the movie away, Sean finds himself and God, thanks to the love and compassion of not only of his father but others around him.Read more ›
Sean begins college with the attitude nothing is serious, everything is a joke. He parties every night, drinking and taking pills and is consistently late to class. In one class, Sean is challenged by his professor to find the right path in life and to stay on it. As usual, Sean doesn't take the professor serious. Sean's actions result in him being kicked out of the college.
One day while eating lunch, Sean meets a beautiful waitress named Ali, (Rachael Lee). Ali is very sceptical of Sean and she tries to stay away from him. Sean proceeds to befriend Ali and soon they start to see one another. Ali confides in Sean about her past life and how she was betrayed by her father. Ali tells Sean that dancing is her escape from the problems of life. Sean explains to Ali how he has always felt pushed into religion and he says he knows he can make it without God.
Sean's choices soon show him how very wrong he is. The drinking and partying lands him in a car wreck and it also costs him his friendship with Ali.
Ali begins fellowship for Christian classes and learns that even though she was deserted by her earthly father, her heavenly father will never desert her.Read more ›
