From the Director of “God’s Not Dead” Comes a New Story of Redemption, Family, Friendship and Faith
God Bless the Broken Road will release in select Canadian theatres on September 7, 2018
WATERLOO, ON – August 21, 2018 — The popular, chart-topping song, “Bless the Broken Road,” now serves as the inspiration behind the new film, GOD BLESS THE BROKEN ROAD, releasing in select Canadian theatres on September 7, 2018. GOD BLESS THE BROKEN ROAD is directed by Harold Cronk (GOD’S NOT DEAD, GOD’S NOT DEAD 2), produced by Andy Fraser (THE GOOD SHEPHERD) and written by Harold Cronk and author Jennifer Dornbush.
Starring Lindsay Pulsipher (True Blood, The Hatfields & McCoys), Jordin Sparks (Sparkle, Left Behind), LaDainian Tomlinson (NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame), Mackenize Moss (Steve Jobs), Andrew W. Walker (Date with Love, Steel Toes) and Madeline Carroll (I Can Only Imagine), GOD BLESS THE BROKEN ROAD is the inspirational story of a young mother, Amber Hill (Pulsipher), who struggles to hold on to her faith as she raises her young daughter, Bree (Moss), in the wake of her husband’s death in Afghanistan.
With a focus on faith, family, friendship and paying tribute to those who courageously serve in the military, the film follows Amber’s journey down a broken road after falling into isolation and then being led to a life full of love.
“I felt it was important to show someone in a crisis of faith, in the face of overwhelming loss,” said Director, Harold Cronk.
A few years after her husband’s death, her heart still broken and her faith in shambles, Amber is faced with the daunting prospect of losing her home to foreclosure. Instead of turning to her family, friends or the church for support, Amber rejects the help of her community until they rally around her when her daughter, Bree, runs away. As the search for Bree continues, Amber learns that she should be putting her focus and energy towards the true gift her husband gave her – their daughter – and her faith.
The film was shot in West Michigan, where Cronk grew up and includes elements of faith, country music and stock car racing. Four years after moving to Los Angeles to begin his filmmaking career in 2004, Cronk moved back to his home state to begin 10 West Studios with the intent of producing high-quality films with family and faith-based content.
GOD BLESS THE BROKEN ROAD is produced through 10 West Productions along with Great Basin Entertainment and A Really Good Home Pictures by Edgar Struble, Dustin Solomon, and Andy Fraser. Executive producers are Jeremy Page and Stephen Afendoulis. Interviews with cast members are available.
