The new independent faith-based film, "Uncondtional" starring actor Michael Ealy (Think Like a Man) and Lynn Collins (True Blood) opened in theaters this weekend and is garnering high praise. Have you seen it yet?
Samantha Crawford is living a storybook life: she’s happily married, she lives on a ranch where she keeps her beloved horse, and the stories she’s told and illustrated since childhood have become published books.
When her husband Billy is killed in a senseless act of violence, Sam loses her faith and her will to live. But a death-defying encounter with two children leads to a reunion with Joe, her oldest friend.
As Sam watches “Papa” Joe care for and love the kids in his under-resourced neighborhood, she begins to realize that no matter life’s circumstances, the love of God is always reaching out to us.
THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY
The real-life Joe Bradford serves seven at-risk communities in Nashville, TN through his Elijah's Heart ministry. Elijah’s Heart is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to show love to underprivileged children and their families, to assist them with practical needs and to raise awareness about their desperate situations.
"My dream is that Unconditional inspires cities to unite in love to rescue one of our most precious commodities: thousands of at-risk and fatherless children torn by poverty and oppression," Bradford said.
The ACT Campaign was launched alongside "Unconditional" and encourages moviegoers to serve their communities. Audiences are welcome to sign up to become partners with the film and its message at unconditionalthemovie.com/act
