Storyline

Benjamin Bernard has lived his life in the shadow of his brother. Torn between jealousy and loyalty, Benjamin takes out his aggression as a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter. After an event nearly shatters the life of his brother, Benjamin must face his overwhelming feelings of anger and resentment as he discovers the truth about his family. As one brother fights for his life, the other must fight for reconciliation and redemption inside and outside the cage. This family film explores love, forgiveness, loss, healed relationship and, ultimately, the realization that we are all God's Favorite. Written by Luke Bernard

Worthwhile
13 September 2018 | by stefanie-62653See all my reviews

This movie had all the feels, joy, sadness, frustration, anger, love- you couldn't help but root for both brothers to get well in their own way. A great film and example of our Father's Love, unending and steadfast. Well done!
