Available Tuesday, Aug. 18 on DVD is “Catching Faith,” a moving story about a woman who seems to have it all—a perfect marriage, a daughter at the top of her class and an athletic son at the top of his game. But things are not always as they appear for Alexa Taylor (Lorena Segura York). On the very night her father dies, things begin to unravel when her son Beau (Garrett Wesston) is caught drinking at a party violating the school’s behavior policy for athletics. The police and the community turn the other way, willing to allow the young athlete to bring them victory regardless of the bad lesson it teaches him. His sister’s pressure to perform is no less severe. At the top of her class, Ravyn (Bethany Peterson) is expected to be valedictorian, but high school Latin has proven to be much harder than she expected. She finds the perfect opportunity to cheat, and wavers on the decision to be honest, or to be victorious. Inspired by the real life experiences of his co-writer, Christian Counsellor, Andrea M. Polnaszek, John K.D. Graham directs this faith-based film about one family’s journey toward a true relationship with God and each other, despite the pressures of the community to keep on with the facade. It also is available on Digital HD and On Demand. For more information or to see the trailer, go to www.CatchingFaith.com.
