Unconditional directed by Brent McCorkie, and produced by Jason Atkins and J. Wesley Legg, stars Michael Ealy. The film is said to be based on the true events surrounding Ealy’s character of Joe Bradford.
The synopsis reads:
Samantha Crawford’s life is a storybook life: she’s happily married, she lives on a ranch where she keeps her beloved horse, and the stories she’s told and illustrated since childhood have become published books. When her husband Billy is killed in a senseless act of violence, Sam loses her faith and her will to live. But a death-defying encounter with two children leads to a reunion with Joe, her oldest friend. As Sam watches her friend Joe care for and love the kids in his under-resourced neighborhood, she begins to realize that no matter life’s circumstances, the love of God is always reaching out to us.
Currently has a 40% Fesh Ratin on Rotten Tomatoes but with only five reviews currently I would say its too early to make a determination.
