Everything comes to a head when Brendan, at the request of his fellow Bible club members “The Seekers,” comes up with a project that links his old inner city neighborhood and dismal past with his new community and more promising and hopeful future.

The movie does a good job of bringing relevant themes like foster care and teen drug abuse to the forefront in a very compelling and touching story. I predict that moviegoers will be inspired during the scene when Brendan takes Vanessa and some of his other new friends to the boarded-up drug house where he once lived. As the characters survey the dilapidated building with its filthy interior, it's not too hard to imagine what life was like for the young man living there — and many moviegoers may realize that youths growing up in scenarios like this are in reality in too many homes and neighborhoods these days.

“King's Faith” was produced and distributed through a partnership between Faith Street Film Partners in association with Hopefilled Media and Waking Giants Entertainment.
