A PureFlix film, Faith of Our Fathers is both inspiring and moving. In 1969, we find Eddie & Steven in the midst of the Vietnam War. Flashback to current day, we see a soon-to-be-married John Paul and a grumpy Wayne…
After cleaning out his mothers home after her passing, John Paul is pushed to finding more about his father, who he never knew much about, when he finds a name in the his box of Vietnam memorabilia- Eddie.
John Paul leaves his girlfriend in California to plan their wedding without him, committed to finding out about his father & to learn more about what happened to him. When he arrives he doesn’t find Eddie, but rather his son, Wayne.
After much hesitation on both ends, Wayne leads the two on a road trip to the Vietnam Wall in Washington, DC.
Through a series of mishaps and trials (and even a brief scene with Si Robertson), we see the two get to know each other and, at the same time, we see how their fathers grew close, 25 years prior.
This movie gives a raw glimpse into war life and the terrors that go along with it, but also with what the soldiers leave behind at home- their wives and children. A family friendly, pure, Christian-based movie, this is a definite must-see.
By the end of the film, you are sure to want to go and run your father tight, realizing that some daddy’s aren’t home with their families- they are out fighting for our country (thank you!)
