Directed by Neema Barnette an African American Filmmaker who has also directed for A Different World and the Cosby Show. Not only is this a faith based film but it was also a dramatic thriller based in New Orleans. Bishop Jakes and Neema Barnette have definitely raised the bar for faith based films
Kari Ames is a successful real estate agent. She is a college graduate and dedicated wife and mother. Her husband, David Ames, is a well-respected author, lecturer and Dean of the Humanities Department at Xavier University. They seem to have the perfect life until the kidnapping of their 4 year old daughter, Mikayla, turns their fairytale lives and marriage into a nightmare. Over the course of seven days the couples search to find their daughter. As dark secrets of Kari’s past surface she struggles to find truth in her identity and peace within herself. While David deals with the reality of his daughter missing he is plagued with guilt of his own infidelities. Danger awaits the couple at every turn and the faith they once leaned on loses ground under false pretenses and the demons that haunt them. With only six days to find their daughter, whom is presumed to be abducted by a local serial killer, the couple races against time, their own insecurities and dark secrets to save her.
“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.”

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless–it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.” -C.S. Lewis
I plucked my soul out of its secret place,
And held it to the mirror of my eye,
To see it like a star against the sky,
A twitching body quivering in space,
A spark of passion shining on my face.
And I explored it to determine why
This awful key to my infinity
Conspires to rob me of sweet joy and grace.
And if the sign may not be fully read,
If I can comprehend but not control,
I need not gloom my days with futile dread,
Because I see a part and not the whole.
Contemplating the strange, I’m comforted
By this narcotic thought: I know my soul.
– Claude McKay
