What happens when a Pastor falls in love with a Vegas Stripper? How much will one man lose, to gain the one he loves? This 32 minute adaptation of the Biblical story of Hosea walks the viewer through the struggles of Sophi (Crissy Moran), a stripper trying to break out of that life. Sophi meets and falls for a Pastor, Joshua (Stephen Zimpel). Their two worlds collide and they are forced to deal with this fallout. How do people treat a pastor that loves a stripper? Do people ever really accept the stripper into "the real world?"
This story of redemption and grace is guided by Pastor David Cowan of Elevation Church and is meant to get people to think about things... to examine their own hearts and realize the extent of God's love for the unlovable.

I think that in the end the short film in it self, just was not long enough to develop the relationship that the audience needs to see between Josh & Sophie, but you understand where the idea is going.
What would Hosea look like if in today's world it took place? If a Pastor married a Stripper? How would people respond? How would churches respond. It takes a hard look at the reality of where church stands, while it shows the reality of what God calls us to do. To show grace where even looking at each of our own lives grace is not deserved.
It is no where close to the depth of the Book of Hosea, but it gives a fresh look into how we can transpose something in the Bible to making it relevant today. The Narrator & Pastor sums up the story well, and sums up that this is in no way to replace Hosea in the least.
In the end, I think the ideas of the movie were good, though the relationships within needed to be lengthen. And the acting wasn't the best, I think the pastor summed it up nicely in the end. For a short-film thats 32 minutes long I think it got the message across that God shows grace where it is not deserved.
