Story:  Faith-based drama revolves around three families from different cultures who live in the same community; they are complete strangers living vastly separate lives until a texting-and-driving accident thrusts them onto converging paths where they discover God’s love, forgiveness, grace and mercy.

Pastor David Newman is a loving husband and father, set to take over his dad’s church while neglecting the promises he’s made to his 12-year-old son, Eric.  Kate Hernandez is a spiritually driven single-parent and owner of a local restaurant. Her daughter Maria is a free-spirited teenager aspiring to be the first in her family to go to college.  John Danielson is the owner of a failing construction company who sees his daughter Michelle’s fledgling singing career as a way out of financial trouble. The lives of these strangers collide when two twists of fate strike back to back. The first: while texting and driving in her car, Maria accidentally hits Eric, which lands Maria in jail and leaves Eric’s family with an unthinkable dilemma. The second: while auditioning for a major record label, Michelle collapses, leading to a discovery about her health which rocks the very foundation of her father’s dream.

All three families find themselves at a crossroads, questioning their faith and the higher power that guides their lives. As each family member deals with their issues, their worlds start to intertwine. This leads to a chain of events which unknowingly brings the three families closer and closer together.  Source:  official site.
