This was a different type of film in that it tries to deal with why bad things happen to good people. What I personally got from it is that we live in a fallen, dying world. Just because we are new creatures through Christ, it does not mean our lives will be free from pain and suffering. I felt it was made also as a tribute to their friend's son who had passed away.
I actually lent this to a family who's close friends had lost a child. They said it was comforting to them. This film is not meant to be a film to watch with popcorn to be entertained and to loose yourself in a story for a few hours. It is a film that in a very artistic way deals with a very hard subject.
