After serving a ten-year prison sentence, Lee Ferguson (Joe Rowley) returns to the small town where he was raised. Looking to lead a simple life, he takes a job at the local grocery store where all he wants beyond a daily routine is to be left alone. But when Lee saves Katie (Liz DuChez) from being assaulted, his life becomes anything but simple. Lee’s budding relationship with Katie is threatened by a scheming coworker and a violent past which will not stay buried. When a mysterious stranger knocks on his door, Lee is suddenly confronted with the choices he made long ago. He must now decide how far he is willing to go to seek redemption. The Path of the Wind is a compelling story of love, vengeance, and forgiveness, and the powers we choose to let guide us.
The Path of the Wind
Dove "Faith-Friendly" - Recommended for ages 12 and over.
Starting over is never easy and sometimes the hardest things in life are forgiveness and redemption. This is an intriguing story of one man's journey into the world after being in prison for ten years, due to a bad choice he made when he was younger. Lee is now trying to begin a new life. He returns to the house he grew up in and must find a job. The one thing that is hard for him is to find a way to forgive himself for his past. But as a relationship begins between Katie and Lee their pasts come to light along with their differences in what they believe in. Their relationship is challenged by people around them, their own feelings and their faith. This is a story of forgiveness and redemption not only from others but also for one's self through God. This movie also portrays some of the misguided views that some people have regarding Evangelical Christians, religion and faith. The story will make the viewer think of the important things in life because it may change at any given moment. We award our Dove Seal to this film for ages of twelve and older.
