This is a great faith based movie suitable for family viewing.
19 October 2011 | by Bud-35See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that will sneak up on your emotions. If you don't shed a tear, you will at least have a lump in your throat before this movie is over. Jake (William Devane) passes away with 5 grown children. Judith (GiGi Erneta), the younger sister and Iraq veteran wishes to have the flag from her fathers funeral, but doesn't want to challenge her brothers as they discuss who is to get what part of the estate. Faith in the Lord during and after her military tour gets Judith through this hard time in her life. Her brothers, having not served in the military, did not have a grasp of her military experiences and could not understand her feelings until it was a little too late. Be ready for an unexpected twist at the end of the movie. I identified with Judith and Jake and their reluctance to share some of their war time experiences, there are some memories you share, some you take to your grave. As a Christian and a war veteran, I appreciated this movie on two levels, from the power that the Lord has over our lives and from the impact that the experience of a wartime environment has on our souls. One positive thing about this movie that I did notice was the lack of profane language and the absence of any nudity or sexual implications. This is a movie that I would recommend to anyone who would like to see good family entertainment with a meaningful message
