THIS DVD cannot fail to touch the viewer for multiple reasons.

This true story from the USA involves a myriad of human emotions as it relates the life of an ordinary person who murdered his wife.

The teller of the story is the murderer's step-son, who grappled with the loss of his mother at the age of twelve.

This son travels a worldly path before he is confronted with a call to ministry.

The story involves a series of complex family relationships but in the end is all about forgiveness of self and others.

There are no easy answers but a process of refinement that culminates in loving and restored relationships.
