Can people really change? We have all heard the expression, "Leopords don't change their spots" and things of that nature. That is Brendan King's problem. He has a past. He has been a product of the foster care system for years, he has used drugs, committed crimes, spent time incarcerated, and been part of a gang. Now he has turned his life over to God, but can he stand strong in his faith when times get hard?
Part of Brendan's problem is that while he does have people on his side, he also has people betting against him. It doesn't help that members of his old gang are harassing him, either.
Luckily a high school teacher has taken Brendan in. This is definitely the hand of God in his life because Mr. Stubbs has a deeply rooted faith and he is willing to stand with Brendan when nobody else wants to. He also gets Brendan involved with the school's Bible Club. In turn, Brendan is able to show God to Natalie, and everything that happens in the story is also able to touch the hearts of Mrs. Stubbs and their friend who is a police officer. There is a lot going on, but it all comes together well and keeps the story interesting.
This is a Christian film, and the work of God's hand is woven throughout the entire film - however, it is NOT a film for young people or any teens who are not familiar with drug or gang culture. The opening scene is Brendan having a flashback of the night he was arrested and how he saw his friend killed in front of his eyes. There are fights, gun, drugs, and other subjects that are a bit delicate.
The edgy material is not gratuitous and it is not the dominating part of the story. If the film is suitable for your family, you will think it is done properly. It helped my sons to see some of what I have tried to teach them about the drug and gang culture that is prevalent in our area and it does NOT make it seem interesting or glamorous.
