Left motherless by tragedy and abandoned by his father, high school senior Seth McArdle (Samuel Davis) faces enormous pressure as he strives to support his little sisters. At school, he endures the daily bullying of the football team. But fighting back only finds him singled out for punishment and assigned to an after-school work detail under the supervision of the reserved groundskeeper, Abel (SOUL SURFER’S Kevin Sorbo). Much to his surprise, Seth discovers that Abel may be the only one who truly understands his struggles. As dark times lure Seth toward desperate measures, the reluctant Abel may be the one person who can point him back toward the light.
Abel's Field is a story of God's amazing grace and His promise to never leave or forsake us, even in our most dire needs. It is also about redemption and a second chance. This movie was well written, well acted and had a great soundtrack. One thing I really liked about the movie was that it didn't have a predictable or clean ending. I really thought one thing would happen through the movie and it didn't end that way at all. I would definitely recommend this movie to others. It would even be a great movie to show in a large group setting (there is information about that on the website).
