This movie is based on a true story. Ashley Smith was held hostage by Brian Nichols after he escapes from an Atlanta courthouse and evades police. During tense hours of captivity, Ashley learns she and Brian have some problems in common. Both of them have important choices to make.
Rick Warren's book, The Purpose Driven Life plays a role as Ashley reads from the book and manages to connect with her captor in a way that causes him to let her go.
There is violence and drug use, but only as it is integral to the story. I appreciated the dedication of the movie to Brian Nichols' victims. Each is depicted in the movie and photos are shown in the credits to honor them. See more at the official movie website.
Comment on this blog post by Friday, January 29 to be entered into a drawing for a free copy of the DVD. I received a complimentary review copy from Flyby Promotions.
