A true story of amazing love, forgiveness and grace in the face of tragedy.
When tragedy pierces the heart of a small community on the quiet Texas plains, its townspeople witness what can happen when grace and forgiveness triumph over anguish and outrage.
Against the clamorous traffic of our crowded lives, a story of such tender mercy can seem more of a work of fiction or a wishful tale...yet every moment of this unbelievable story is true.
Producers of this documentary film, Blake Pilgreen and Mitchell Wright, are both Emmy® winners.
Winner of 3 awards at the Worldfest International Film Festival 2009:

I thought it was a movie but it was a documentary about a true story of forgiveness. This was about a family that lost their little girl to a hit and run driver in a unavoidable accident.

This movie troubles me greatly.
Forgiveness is not just a "good idea," but a commandment from Christ. Mr. Parker should have been - and was forgiven.
However, I can't get beyond the total lack of consequences for Mr. Parker. Making mistakes is a big part of being human, and God's forgiveness is there when we ask for it. We should be joyful if those we wrong also forgive us.
There does not appear to be any malice whatsoever on Mr. Parker's part. But beyond the emotions that this film generates in almost all viewers, we do need to look at the facts of this event. A vehicle-pedestrian collision so forceful that parts of the truck remained at the scene, yet no attempt whatsoever to stop.
Did Mr. Parker "deserve" jail? No, that would merely be retribution. But what tangible consequences were there for him? A commitment to never drive again? An effort to remind young drivers of the enduring pain of careless driving? Remember that Christ did not tell us only that "you are forgiven," but also "go, and sin no more." If I were to, God-forbid, ever run over a little one, even if I made every humanly-possible effort to avoid it and stop, I would feel a lifelong burden to make amends for it, by helping to make sure my tragedy was not repeated.
The story of the Amish families portrayed in "Amish Grace" is much more highly recommended for teaching the virtue of forgiveness - without the serious "aftertaste" this work leaves.

This is a very well produced documentary, but even moreso, a very strong story about the power of faith and forgiveness and a portrayal of what it truly means to live as Christ and bear the fruit of living truth. Tearful, yet inspiring, this is a highly recommended film.

Although it was a bit depressing, to us, it was a well made documentary. Cinematography was excellent, and story was incredible.
The Heart Of Texas - DVD – Joseph B, 02/10/2010
This is a movie to touch the depths of your heart. Can you forgive as God forgives? A true story that tells what all of us must learn when unexpected tragedy strikes. I give it my highest recommendation for healing the broken heart and turning to God for comfort not understanding why things like this happen.
The Heart Of Texas - DVD – Barbara K, 08/31/2009
Very moving. Would be very therapeutic for someone needing grief counseling.
