Finding Hope Now

Description:

When Today is All You've Got
His father’s cruelty pushes Santos Delgado (Avan Jogia, Nickelodeon “Victorious”, ABC Family “Twisted”), age 16, into having to survive on the streets. Reverend Roger Minassian (Michael Badalucco, Emmy Award Winner “The Practice”), age 53, knows nothing about street youth, but feels God’s calling to help, so he steps way outside of his comfort zone, and takes to the streets ravaged by gang violence. The lives of Roger and Santos intertwine as Roger learns to become a father to the fatherless and Santos struggles to find a new life.

DOVE REVIEW 
This movie shares a powerful true story, the story of Rev. Roger Minassian who left a steady pastorate when he was 53 years old to minister to gang members in Fresno, California. He faces tough attitudes, hardened young men, and violence as he goes after the gang members with a mission, to turn their lives around. He manages to reach some of the young men but must endure some losses along the way, including those who die violent deaths. This film is based on the book, “Gangs to Jobs”. 

While this is a compelling and remarkable story about a man of God with a purpose, the film contains realistic scenes of slightly graphic but non-gratuitous violence. In addition a man who is cornered by police in a store following a robbery takes his own life and in another scene a father beats his son’s back with a stick. There is also a drive-by shooting in which a bloody victim is seen dead on the ground and then another shooting at a home which has kids as retribution for the other shooting. While there is some bloody violence in the film, the scenes are not overly graphic and are appropriate to the story. We are pleased to award this film our Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12 and over.
