Product Overview
In the early 1960's, Victor Torres and his family moved to Brooklyn, New York from their native Puerto Rico in search of a new life. The American dream quickly fades as they face a life of want in their adopted home. As a new recruit in a street gang, a teenage Victor embarks on a lucrative new drug-trafficking business in an attempt to help his struggling family. VICTOR is quickly enslaved by drug use, and his parents, Manuel and Lila, desperately search to find a way to help their son. A faith-based rehabilitation program is their last chance to rescue Victor.

“I am more than blessed to endorse and encourage you to watch a life changing film. There are movies that entertain and then there are movies that inspire, and then there are movies that literally have the potential of changing a life. ‘Victor’ is one of those, a story that is the quintessential narrative of the ‘pit to the palace’ to the redemptive work of Christ.” 
- Samuel Rodriguez (Pastor of New Season Christian Worship Center / President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference)

“In a time when the youth of our nation are increasingly subjected to the hopelessness of being told that there is no God, I am so thankful for stories like that of Victor Torres. His story proves the existence of a divine and all-powerful life-giving Savior. What this movie wonderfully and compellingly captivates is the reality for what Jesus once said: “you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free.” 
- Carter Conlon (Senior Pastor of Times Square Church, New York City)
