The movie tells the interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and Alé (Erin Bethea), who marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb), who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God.
“What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”
I watched this with my family. If you're concerned about the leprosy, it is not shown during the movie. It is safe to watch with your family. There is a three minute video at the end that explains the ministry of Embrace a Village in India. It does show people with leprosy that could be disturbing to young children.
My family's thoughts:
"It was very realistic, more like real life than a movie." ~ Michael, 13 years old
"Inspiring, I've never cried so much at a movie." ~ Emily, 15 years old
"It's not our time, it's His. It's not about what we do, it's about what He's called us to be." ~ Lowell, the papa.
