This heartwarming 2013 movie is rated PG. It is entertaining and will inspire the whole family. It is a beautiful movie of a small town that changes lives.
Ryan Scharoun plays Rob Decker, the big city slicker, selfish sports agent who comes to the little town of Middleton to recruit a high school baseball player to the pro league. He is so conceited, he thinks he always gets his own way. He is the CEO of his own company and all he thinks of his work and making more money.
The town offers him more than he owns. They feed his soul. His heart, mind, and attitude are in for a surprise. He finds out that there is more to life than money, fame, and winning. They share the love of Jesus and they preach that “it is not about me, but about God’s will and the kingdom of God that counts.” You will see Jesus’ light shines through these people. Their inspiration comes from God, not the world.
Ashley Anderson McCarthy plays Daisy. She and her brother, Scooter, played by Casey Bond, own a ranch home for boys. It is their calling to help the boys come to their place to heal from all the heartbreak and pain that they came from. It is Daisy and Scooter’s mission in life. They do everything in their power to hold on to their boys and the values and faith that they learn. When Rob Decker comes and tries to recruit one of their boys, Rob is in for a challenge.
