"Sometimes God needs to use extreme measures to deal with extreme circumstances"
Miles Montego has it all. Including a past. He was king of the streets as a high-level drug trafficer, and though he tried to move on, the DEA isn't convinced. Miles is still rolling with his old friends, and the feds are certain he has not fully retired from his criminal past. When Miles meets Vanessa, a woman who is different than every other woman he's met, he is drawn to her beauty and her spirituality. As their connection grows deeper, both are tested to their last ounce of faith in God and in each other.

This movie is timely, contemporary, yet shares a wonderful old message: God can change people's lives! Miles Montego has a past which includes drug trafficking, womanizing, and violence. Yet when he meets Vanessa Leon his life is changed and in spite of himself he is drawn to her faith in God. This remarkable movie is based on a true story.
The characters in this story go through a lot as Miles attempts to leave his past behind. There is a death to contend with and a close call for one of the main characters following an automobile accident. Yet keeping faith in God is the overriding theme of this powerful story. It is a love story in two ways, its the story of a man that falls in love with a woman and one of a man realizing that God loves him.
We are more than happy to award this inspiring movie our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for ages twelve plus. It features fine actors and a terrific theme centering on God's forgiveness and love as well as the love between a man and a woman. This one should not be missed.
