Synopsis:
Based on an inspiring true story, Different Drummers follows the heartwarming yet unlikely friendship of two boys growing up in Washington in the 1960s. When David, who is bound to a wheelchair and growing weaker from muscular dystrophy, accurately foretells the death of his fourth grade teacher, a doubtful Lyle, who has an increasingly high energy level, decides to test the existence of God by attempting to get David to run again.

A pact is made, and Lyle soon begins to twist the rules in a desperate attempt to give his friend some of his own excess energy. Along the way, the two boys come face to face with life's most painful truths, and Lyle's question is ultimately answered in a way he never could have imagined.

Dove Worldview:
This movie, based on a true story, is a remarkable story about friendship. It will take adults back to their childhood and will show kids what life was like growing up in the sixties when there were no video games and rotary phones were used.

Young David, bound to a wheel chair due to Muscular Dystrophy, prays to God and becomes friends with a young boy named Lyle, who is fascinated by David's walk with God. David and Lyle are soon inseparable but Lyle is a bit hyperactive and the school principal is not one of his strong supporters. Lyle comes up with an idea to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy but he often winds up in trouble. When he takes David for a ride down a steep road on his wheel chair, it seems that their friendship might be cut off, if the principal has anything to do with it.

This is a story of friendship and faith and working toward change. We are pleased to award it our Dove Seal. You will want to walk to the beat of these "Different Drummers".

Quote For The Day
"Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before God made anything at all and is supreme over all creation. Christ is the one through whom God created everything in heaven and earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can't see-kings, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities. Everything has been created through him and for him. He existed before everything else began, and he holds all creation together."
- Colossians 1:15-17
