About the Film
Hero is the story of a man's broken relationship with his son, which fills him with the determination to reach his son and make a difference in his town. He forms a baseball team deliberately designed to involve both fathers and sons in a common effort. His actions begin to turn the heart of a father in prison and to transform a town. As fathers grow in their relationship with their sons, tey learn that God the Father wants the same close relationship with them.

Hero is a powerful depiction of God's desire to "turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers..." (Malachi 4:6)

Hero was filmed in Winston Salem, NC, in the fall of 2009, with 20 professional actors, 30 professional crew members and 30 student interns. An additional 250 moms, dads and kids volunteered during four weeks of production.

Hero is currently in post-production. Visit the Hero website to see the trailer and learn more about the film.
