A refugee’s escape, a prisoner’s promise, and a daughter’s painful secret converge in this inspiring true story of hope
Beautifully Broken, which was screened during Proclaim 18 in Nashville earlier this year, opens in select theaters nationwide Friday, August 24.
The inspirational film tells the riveting true story of three families, worlds apart, whose paths seem unlikely to cross. Each family faces a crisis beyond their control, and is forced to make difficult decisions. Those decisions set in motion a series of events that leads to their lives becoming intertwined in ways they could have never predicted or imagined. Their journeys reveal the divine tapestry of God’s love and guidance, and they learn firsthand the power of forgiveness and reconciliation.
Filmed on location in Port Alfred, South Africa, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Beautifully Broken was directed by Eric Welch (DC Talk: Welcome to the Freak Show) and written by Brad Allen, Chuck Howard and Martin Michael (I Am Not Ashamed), along with Mark McCann (Harmony). It was produced by Allen, Michael and Howard, along with Lisa Arnold (Caged No More), Jarred Coates (God's Not Dead), Michelle Duffie (War Room, The Shack), and executive produced by Randy Hartley (Through the Valley).
The movie features songs by Dove Award winner Plumb and Grammy Award winner John Berry. In addition to Hollywood actors including Oscar nominee Eric Roberts and Benjamin Onyango (God's Not Dead, Inception), and television personality Thomasina “Goo Goo” Atkins (Mary Mary), Christian music fans will also recognize CCM legends Toby McKeehan and Michael W. Smith making appearances in the film – McKeehan playing himself, and Smith in the role of Pastor Henry.
