The film tells us the story of how 'Sam Childers' (Gerard Butler) transformed his life from a villian to become a 'hero' in a far off land.
It starts with his release from prison, his family whilst he was serving time had turned to the church for comfort, and in fact had found 'faith'
'Sam' now released seems to want to pick up where he had left off risking a further jail term, however his family, now deeply religous persuade him to join them at a 'service'
'Sam' finds unexpectantly the service and baptism of comfort, he begins to turn his life around, even starting up a business.
In a dream, 'Sam' believes that 'God' has directed him to build a church for their community.
Whilst watching a news program, he is drawn to the plight of the people in 'Sudan' and 'Northern Uganda' where the people were being slaughtered by a revolutionary,rouge army leaving thousands of young children orphaned.
What follows is the remarkable story of 'Sam Childers' crusade to protect as many of the children as possible and build them a safe enviroment to live in.
The sights he saw after an attack leads him to take up arms against the evils of the terrorist organisation.
How will he balance his values between his 'loving' home life and what he see's as his purpose in life.
What can i say....it really is a good and inspirational movie.
