A father plays a critical role in the lives of his children. This film explores the complexities of that relationship in 9 short minutes. As sons, we sort through the good and the bad of what our dad transferred to us, striving to let go of any regret and bitterness while pursuing the freedom that forgiveness brings. As dads, we give it our best, but sometimes our best seems remarkably average. We are commonly afraid the wrong things will stick, hoping the good things remain.
We’ve created a study guide to help you reflect on these universal themes and more. Storytelling is a powerful medium to unlock your own heart, helping you understand things about yourself you otherwise might not have had the clarity to see. The film has been divided into 3, 3 minute sections. Each clip has it’s own set of discussion questions, spurring you to reflect on a particular topic alone or in small groups. In addition, we have a 1 week and a 3 week sermon outline suggestion. Allowing you to show the film and teach on the topics all at once or as a series.
After 2 years touring the world on the festival circuit, the film is now available for free to watch online. For $10 you can download a digital copy of the film along with a pdf of the small group study guide. A message outline is also available. Purchasing any of these options gives you permission to use the film within your organization. I realize you can easily play the vimeo version pretty much anywhere, but I’d go bonkers if you’d support me – it will help me convince my wife I should make another movie. A hard copy of the DVD is available for $10, including shipping. Or get 15 DVDs AND the study guide AND digital download for $100. The DVD comes with extra features, including a featurette giving a heartwarming look at Rick and Micah’s relationship 2 years after the film was shot.
Listen to a Father’s Day sermon that built the message around the film. It’ll stir your heart. By Dan Deeble of Heartland Community Church.
