A missing child. A family in crisis. A faith tested. In their darkest hour, God gives hope.
Dean Cain stars as Randy Simpkins, a husband and father torn between the demands of his job and family. Asked by his wife to watch their two-year-old son, Joe, for a few minutes, he becomes distracted by work. When he returns, Joe is gone. He and his wife search desperately for their missing son through the vast countryside. But as their fear grows, the community responds – hundreds of supporters uniting behind the family in a powerful spiritual journey that will test the couple’s love and faith, and forever change a community.
This was a heartwarming, gut-wrenching movie that will make you consider what your priorities are over and over as you watch through it. Based on the true-to-life experience of the Simpkin Family, I was very impressed with the flow of the film, the acting was wonderful and the writing team did a fantastic job. I also love the fact that the Simpkin family was directly involved with the filming process. All emotions will be felt as you watch this movie, so prepare yourself and have tissues near by. What really resonated with me is that even though Randy and Christal marriage struggles through the movie, and Randy's family is not priority, you see the hand of God throughout all the circumstances. I was truly impacted by the faith journey Randy took in The Way Home.
A great movie that I highly recommend! Great for the movie buff on your Christmas list this year!
