  • A MESSAGE FROM GOD (Feature Film)

    When her son wakes from a coma with supernatural prophetic powers, family relationships are strained and so is her celebrity status as Mrs. South Africa. Tensions are high as the family struggles to believe her son’s prophetic Message from God to the world until the unexpected happens, 
    he writes two letters to two families he has never met before with precise details of their deceased children he met on the other side.

     

    Based on the NY Times best-selling inspirational true story "A Message from God" by Retha and Aldo McPherson. A story of incredible faith and of a family overcoming the impossible with a God of the possible.
