Michael Evans is forced to move to the small town of New Hope in the middle of his senior year. Thrust onto the basketball team just before the playoffs, Michael struggles to fit in, particularly with star player Lucas Green (Ben Davies, Courageous). Compounding the situation, Michael begins dating Jasmine Stone, the former girlfriend of Lucas’ brother Chase, whose suicide shook the entire town to its core. Capturing the life of the modern teenager, New Hope is a powerful story that openly deals with peer pressure, alcohol, sex, relationships, and acceptance.
Directed by Rodney Ray (Flag of My Father, Desires of the Heart), New Hope follows a young man’s fight to turn the other cheek, rise above his tormentor, and forgive a hurting soul. A well-crafted film with a strong Christian message, this inspiring drama reminds us that life’s troubles may test our faith, but God is watching out for us every step of the way.
