Two unknown producers struggle to fulfill their dreams to change lives through the power of film. With millions of investors' dollars on the line, everything starts to fall apart and they realize they may be in over their heads.

I love Karen Kingsbury, but I have to say I was disappointed with the quality of this narration. In particular one female narrator was quite poor and stilted which is very unfortunate because KK is an excellent author.
