"14 year old Tyler Ellison is a football hero in the tiny industrial town of Walnut Ridge, Arkansas. Walking home across the railroad tracks from his Grandmother's house, he was hit by a speeding freight train and thrown 30 feet. Tyler suffered a broad spectrum of internal injuries, including trauma to the brain, and a large dent in his back from the train's fender. Tyler flat-lined on the helicopter ride to Children's Hospital in Little Rock. No one thought he would live.
What begins as an eye catching small-town headline - ""Boy Miraculously Survives Train Impact"" - blossoms into a suspense-and surprise-filled drama. Amid a visually evocative landscape of country fields and glass factories, train tracks and bait shops, this film chronicles one family's intense struggles with the gods and demons of everyday life as they relate to the first of the Ten Commandmends. The film does not offer simple answers, yet it raises consciousness about a modern life infused with the same epic questions that motivated an embrace of the Ten Commandments 3.500 years ago.
