The Prophet's Son (2012) - full transcript

THE PROPHET'S SON intertwines the lives of an internationally acclaimed young musician and a beautiful, young writer of equal popularity. While they discover their deep and abiding love for each other, they move powerfully in their faith and love for God and His people, boldly laying down their lives which are impacted through the teenage drama of school shootings and runaway youth, and in the aftermath of a nuclear hit on several large cities, including their own, in an attempted overthrow of the United States when the borders are opened after the election of a new, inexperienced president.

Hey, Abel, can I ask you
something?

Sure.

Why don't you date?

I mean you have everything a
woman is looking for.

In Genesis, God brought Adam
his wife.

I'm just following Scripture.

Has God brought your bride yet?

PASTOR: In Matthew 24 verse 7

it says that in the last days
we will see these signs

Nation will rise against nation.

Kingdom against kingdom.

We will see famine.

Earthquakes.

Disaster.

Now if we do not turn to God...

then judgment is surely on its
way.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

POLITICIAN: This election is
about one thing!

Freedom.

[CHEERING]

They don't realize what they
are about to do.

Forgive them, Lord.

[STRUMMING GUITAR]

Is that all?

[LAUGHING] Mom?

That was lovely. When did you
write it?

Just now, actually.

A little something going
through my head.

I can't wait to hear what you
have written for the concert.

You'll know in a few days.

I love to hear you play.

But, time for dinner.

Actually...I'm not really
hungry tonight.

Abel Benjamin...you have never
turned down a meal.

What's bothering you?

It's this election.

Oh I know...

But all we can do is pray.

Such a beautiful sunset.

It is.

It reminds me of someone.

Do you know her name?

I'm sorry...?

Abel...

I know that look.

It's love.

She must be very special.

You might be right.

But to be honest, I don't know
who she is.

But she's in that glow
somewhere.

[MUSIC PLAYING SOFTLY]

[NOISE FROM OTHER ROOM] ISAAC:
Get off of me! Leave me alone!

Quiet down!

ISAAC: Okay, then help me then!

He's trying to pin me to the
ground again.

Trying!? No...no...I did pin
you.

See I...I always pin him
because he never fights back.

Guess what. I'm not going to
fight back because

all this wrestling is stupid
anyways.

Oh, really?

What has gotten into you?! Will
you stop!

Hey. I'm just bored. Relax.

You're always bored!

Well yeah, all we do is go to
church and

pray and read the Bible, and go
to more church.

And plus he's
always talking about

judgment coming to America.
What's that?

Well, this is true if America
doesn't turn to God.

[SCOFFING]

So...you agree with Pastor
Daniel then?

Yeah

Yeah, see, I can't get into all
of that.

Yeah, to me everything

looks like it is going to be
alright. So...

Hey. At least the concert will
be fun, right?

I bet Abel will sing.

Aaah I saw that smile

Okay guys, get out! I have work
to do.

[DOOR CLOSING]

[MUSIC PLAYING]

I'm done.

I gotta go.

Where ya going?

Recording studio.

I bet Rachel's waiting for you.

She's never late. I better be
there on time.

Hey, last night...a scripture
came to me.

What was it?

Isaiah 43:2

Though I walk through the
water, I shall not be drowned.

And though I walk through the
fire, I shall not be burned.

Who was that for?

I think it's for you.

Juliet! Finally. Is everything
okay?

Yeah! Just working. Uh...what's
up?

You know, I got us special

What's tonight?

Wake up, Juliet! We're talking
about the Abel Benjamin concert!

Yeah. Uh. I c-

I can probably pull away for a
little bit so we could go.

And, so...see you there in an
hour?

That sounds good.

Oooh I can't wait!

[MUSIC PLAYING]

[LAUGHING] Are you kidding me?
This is...this is ridiculous!

I know!

Abel, this is amazing.

Did you see the crowd out there?

No.

Check it out.

I mean...the place is packed!

[SONG ENDS, AUDIENCE CLAPPING
AND WHISTLING]

[GUITAR STRUMMING]

Still going at it.

I love to play.

Oh my goodness...you were so
wonderful tonight!

...Just amazing!

Thank you, Rachel. You did
pretty good yourself.

I'm an easy act to follow.

But I thank you...none the less.

Mom's cooking something for you
guys

so you should probably get
going.

Maybe after another song.

I don't know about you, but I
am starving.

Then another song for another
day.

Come on. Let's go.

What? You're not coming?

Maybe I'll just...grab some
coffee at the Eden.

Christiana should be with us.

Chris...

No, I'll just see you in the
morning.

You sure?

Yeah.

All right. I'll see you

See ya.

[TIRES SCREECHING]

It's been a long time. I, uh,
how are you?

Yeah it has. It's been a long
time. Um..

I'm..I'm doing good. Yeah.

Well...come inside. Let's catch
up.

Yeah if I could ever find a
parking spot!

[LAUGHTER] Yeah. All right.
Well, I'll see you in there.

Okay.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

Over here! Juliet! Here!

Hey. Is it just you?

Yeah. Awesome.

I know you. You're Pastor
Daniel's son. Nice to meet you.

Pleasure.

I had no idea! How long have
you guys known each other?

Quite a while.

Yeah. We've worked together a
couple of times in the church.

Juliet...you never told me you
knew Abel's brother...

You never asked.

Hey, guys.

I'll be taking care of you this
evening. Do we need menus?

I eat here all the time. I
don't need one. Thanks.

I'd like iced tea, please.

I'll have a slice of apple pie
and iced tea as well.

Cheesecake.

All right, guys. I'll be right
back with your order.

The concert tonight
was..magnificent. I...

I don't even have words to
describe it--it was so good.

Well, that's quite a compliment

coming from such an
accomplished writer.

Well, if you'll excuse me for a
moment ladies.

I'll be right back.

I can't believe he's right here
up close and personal!

Please calm down.

I just never thought I'd be
this close to him!

I mean...you know they don't
date.

What?

Yeah. Both Abel and Obadiah do
not date.

Why do you look so surprised?
You don't date either.

I know.

So why don't you?

I made a choice.

I'm saving myself for
someone...special.

Someone I'm going to marry.

Okay.

We're all waiting for that
guy...

Hi. How can I...can I help you
today?

Hi.

I'd like you to put the money
in the bag and not say a word.

I'm sorry...what?

I said put the money in the bag!

He's got a gun!!!

[SCREAMS]

Please don't hurt me.

[MORE SCREAMS]

Then I suggest you do what I say

or I swear I will blow your
brains out!

Money! Bag! Now!

[DIALING CELLPHONE]

It's all right, brother.

No one gets up.

No one leaves!

Anyone goes near those doors, I
will blow your brains out!

And the rest of you...

Purses. Wallets. Jewelry. On
the tables! Now!!

Stop.

What did you say?

You don't want to do this.

Oh yeah.

You won't shoot me.

And you should stop telling me
what to do!

Will you settle for
truth...then?

You don't want to do this. You
don't want to hurt anyone.

I can feel your pain, okay?

You're talking a big talk but
deep down...you're scared.

You're doing this because you
feel you have

no other alternative. But there
is another way

and there is someone that can
help you.

And just who might that be?

His name is Jesus.

Don't...say that name again!

He is your Savior.

and He loves you. He
really...loves you.

Maybe your hearing isn't quite
so good.

One more word...

And you'll what?!

[GUNSHOT]

You think I'm kidding?

You think I won't do it?

Please. Stop.

Hey.

Just calm down, okay?

Everything's gonna be fine.

My name is Juliet.

Nobody here wants to hurt you.

This doesn't have to go any
further.

Just give me the gun.

Please.

I promise...everything's gonna
be fine.

Please.

Let go! Put your hands behind
your back!

Don't move!

[HANDCUFFS BEING LOCKED]

You okay?

Yeah.

Just a little bit shaky.

[SIRENS IN BACKGROUND] I'm
okay. But, um, how's Obadiah?

Oh, he's going to be all right.

They're about ready to take him
to the hospital.

I should go with him.

Excuse me. I'm Jennifer Harris
with Channel 5 News.

Do you mind if I ask you a few
questions?

Actually I'm about...
-It's okay. I'll go with him.

I'll call his family on the way.

Are you sure?

Yeah. You're the hero here
tonight. Not me.

I'll call you later, okay?

Okay.

[AMBULANCE SIREN BLARING]

So I heard tonight was really
successful.

Tonight was incredible!

I really wish I could have been
there.

Yeah....

Well, I was very proud of every
single one of you.

[DISHES CLINKING]

Rachel...Rachel you were
outstanding tonight. Wasn't she?

She was.

Thank you, Sir.

It was okay.

It was nothing compared to Abel.

Thank you, Rachel. You did
pretty well yourself.

Mother, the food is just
incredible. Thank you so much.

So Abel, where's Obadiah?

He's at the Eden. He loves to
go there.

Does he always hang out there
this long?

He does. He's closed the place
down before.

Why?

Uh...it's just that I'm, uh...

[PHONE RINGING]

I'll get it.

Is something wrong?

[PHONE RINGING]

Dad.

Is something wrong?

What?

Honey...it's for you.

Hello. This is Pastor Daniel.

Uh Huh.

[CRYING] What?

Oh no. It's Obadiah.

What happened?

Can I put you on hold, please?

Hi. How can I help you?

I'm looking for Obadiah
Benjamin.

Looks like Room 1138.

You'll need to hurry. Visiting
hours are just about over.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

Hey. Hi, um, I'm here to see
Obadiah. Hey.

Come in.

I'm...not...interrupting
anything?

No. Not at all.

Please. Come in.

Uh...Juliet, this is my
brother, Abel.

Uh, Abel, this is Juliet, my
hero.

Uh, Um, how are, how are you
feeling?

Doing okay.

I guess I owe you my thanks.

Oh, no. I didn't do anything.

So, um, let's hear your side of
the story.

Oh it was your brother who
saved the day.

[LAUGHING] Oh, yeah, some hero
I turned out to be...

...sitting here with a bullet
hole in my leg.

[GIGGLES]
Well, uh, got you this.

Thanks, Juliet.

I'm really glad you're doing
okay.

Uh...guess I'll see you
tomorrow.

...Sure. Sounds good.

Um...it was really nice to meet
you. Um. Goodbye.

Hey! Let me walk you out.

Okay.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

You have an incredible brother.

You were really brave.

Oh, um.

Thank you.

Oh...um...my Mom...
she's um...

I'm sorry...I've gotta...
I gotta go.

'Bye.

NEWSCASTER: Our top story this
morning is

one of heroism and bravery.
Police have now confirmed one

in custody after an attempted
robbery at the Eden Cafe.

Obadiah Benjamin,

brother of renowned music star
Abel Benjamin,

and local author, Juliet Oscar,
were reported by witnesses as

confronting the would-be thief
as police arrived on the scene.

"I have no regrets for what I
did."

Did you at any time fear for
your life past that point?

No.

Why is that?

Because my Savior, Jesus, was
watching over me.

And here's what the young
author had to say...

Mom, she's on.

There are some people here
tonight calling you a hero.

Oh. No I'm, I'm no hero.
I was...

I was trying to do the right
thing.

As we reported earlier,

the man is now in custody and
being held without bail.

That's enough of that. It's
time to pray.

Come on, Mom.

How often do we get to see
Jules on TV like that?

Hopefully never again.

But you know, I was just doing
what Jesus would have had me do.

[LAUGHING] What?

Uh, nothing.

No seriously. What are you guys
staring at me for?

Cause you are like, you are
like a star, dude.

Oh come on.

Dude. No, seriously! You...you
were able to get into his head

and actually make him bend to
your will.

Whoa!

Isaac, are you okay?

I...I just don't want anyone
else I love to die.

Isaac, no one else is going to
die.

Ok? I'm fine...everything's
fine.

Okay, go ahead.

Father, we thank you so much
for your food

that you give us tonight.

We thank You for Your blessing
our family and protection.

We love You. In Jesus' Name.
Amen.

Hello.

Hi and welcome to the
Restaurant at the Oxford.

Do you have a reservation?

Actually, I don't. But I'm
meeting a friend here.

Not a problem. Just let me know
if you need any help.

Okay, great. Thank you.

Hey, you made it!

We were waiting for you before
we ordered.

We? Who is "we"?

The man you refuse to date!

Hey, Caleb.

Hi. My name is Melissa and I'll
be taking care of you today.

Can I bring you something to
drink?

Iced tea with lemon, please.

A water for me would be great.
Thanks.

Just a beer, please.

I'll be right back with those.

You are extremely difficult to
get ahold of.

Um...yeah. I...I've just been
really busy lately.

I'm sorry.

That's for sure.

Well if you're that concerned
about me,

you do know where to find me.

Church? Uh...I don't think so.
Heh, heh.

Your Jesus...He doesn't want to
see me there.

Well, I mean like it or not,

Jesus is the Savior of this
world.

He's looking out for all of us.

You don't believe in Him?

No.

I'm an atheist!

I don't want anything to do
with that

stuff about heaven and hell.

Someday...you're going to come
to Jesus for help.

That will never happen.

All I need is a cold beer
[SLAPS TABLE] and a burger!

It's as simple as that.

You're welcome, everyone.

Hi.

Hi.

Yes, you too. Thank you very
much for coming.

God bless you.
God bless you.

Hey, look at you. Look at you.
You're just moving.

[LAUGHTER]

...I almost caught it back
there.

Yeah, but you're doing good.

You're doing good. You feeling
better?

I am. Yeah. I'm all right.

God's taking care of us. Amen.
Amen.

Yeah. I know.

Listen, I've got to go see John
here for a minute, okay?

Okay
-So take care okay?

I'll see you at the house.
-Yeah. I'll see you.

Goodbye.

Hey John. Can I see you for a
minute?

You okay?

Uh..Yeah.

You just looked a little lost
there.

[GIGGLE] Hey! they let you out
of the hospital pretty quickly!

Yeah. I can't spend my days
sitting in that bed.

Let's just say I was very
persuasive.

Mm hmm. And we're just going to
leave it at that?

Yeah.

[GIGGLE]

Sis. Are we leaving soon?!

Yeah. Just a minute, Jason.

Come on! We need to go!

What's your deal? Just relax,
okay?

Okay, I've got friends to meet
soon. Okay? Places to go.

And what friends are that
important?

Listen, I'm almost
18 years old!

Okay? I don't have to tell
you and Mom everything!

It's called respect for your
elders...Jason. Try it. Please.

Not you, too, man.

Oh yes. Me too.

Jason!

I have something to tell you.

What?!

God...has a plan in your life.
Okay. He wants to...

A plan?

Yes. And His plan is better
than yours.

You just...tell me when I'm 18!
All right?

[CAR DOOR CLOSING]

I am so sorry.

That's...all right.

We need to pray for him.

What do you mean?

I don't know how to describe
it, but I...

I see a black storm coming.

Well, what...what can I do?

I don't know exactly.

[CAR ENGINE STARTING]

[CAR DOOR CLOSING]

Whoa!

Thank you.

Thank you!

[PHONE RINGING]

[PHONE RINGING]

[PHONE RINGING]

Hello.

Who is it?

Hello?

I'm going to go get some water.
You want some?

Yeah.

[PHONE RINGING]

Hey Obie!

[PHONE RINGING]

[PHONE RINGING]

Hello?

Hi. My name is Mary. I...I
believe you know my son.

I was just answering for my
brother Obadiah.

Do you want me to go get him
for you?

Oh. Are you Abel Benjamin?

Yeah. Can I help you?

Oh, yeah, my son's a fan of
yours.

He really liked your...
he liked your last movie.

What's his name?

Lawrence.

He's in jail.

I'm sorry.

He wanted me to call Obadiah...

...to see if he would come
visit him.

He wants...he wants to
apologize.

For what?

For shooting him.

Are you there?

Yeah, I'm here.

Can I ask a favor?

Yeah.

It would...it would nice
if...

if you could go and see my son.

Yeah. Where is he?

[MUSIC PLAYING]

You're Abel Benjamin.

Hey, Lawrence. How are you?

What are you doing here?

I came to see you.

[LAUGHING] Me?

Yes. You.

This is unbelievable.

I almost killed your brother!

It's OK. Your sins are
forgiven.

That's what the Bible says.

That's just...hard to accept
sometimes.

God's love is real.

Do you think that I
could...still be saved?

Yes. I know you can.

You've got 10 minutes.

I'm worried 'cause...

everytime I look at you, I...

...I hear that voice...that

...that man screaming at me to

break through this glass and
strangle you!

That voice is satan.

And you have a choice to listen
to him or to God.

...Satan is too strong for me.

[CHOKING, DEMONIC NOISES]

I want to kill you, Abel
Benjamin!

In the name of Jesus, set this
boy free.

What happened to me?

Jesus set you free.

I feel peace.

I haven't felt like this in so
long...

God can give you everlasting
peace.

Would you like that?

Would you like to ask Jesus
into your heart?

Yes.

Hey Rachel.

Hey, Abel!

Could I ask you a question?

Sure. What is it?

What is worship?

Well...worship...

John chapter 4, verse 24, says
that God is Spirit. And those

who worship Him must worship
Him in spirit and in truth.

So...when you worship God, you
can meet Him.

You can meet Him anywhere.

So...you ready for practice?

...Oh yeah!...

Hey. Is everything all right?

No! Your brother's not home and
it is almost midnight.

Where do you suppose...

Jason, what happened?

Nothing!

I'm fine!

Jason you are not okay!

Mom...I'm going to get your
keys.

We've got to take him to the
hospital.

No! No doctors.

Are you crazy?!

You're hurt!

We need to call the police.

No!

Okay? No doctors. No police.

All right, I...I'll tell you
everything.

Jason...what if you're hurt
worse than we know?!

I'm not, Mom! Okay?

All right. Then tell us!

I got drunk tonight.

I've been drinking a lot lately.

I've...I've been hanging out
with my friends...

everyday after school.

What are you thinking?!

Hey, they're no good!

I know...Isaac. I know, okay?

I just...

It was just at first...at first
I wanted to help them.

...they just dragged me down
with them.

[KNOCK AT THE DOOR]

What?

Good morning.

Are you feeling any better?

No! I just want everyone to
leave me alone.

Well I'm not going to leave you
alone.

You need to listen to what I
have to say.

You listen, Okay?

[SIGH] Do you know why people
like me always have problems?

It's because people like you
are always

telling me how to
live my life

...or telling me to listen.

I'm sick of listening! I'm
tired of it!

Jason.

[SIGH] Just...Just leave.

(quietly) Jason...

Just leave, Juliet!

[MUSIC PLAYING]

Oh...I love the way the cabin
smells.

Tell you what...

I'm going to go unpack...

and then I'm going to go ahead
and make some sandwiches, okay?

Okay. Sounds good.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

So to solve this equation, you
are going to have to

graph the vertex over the
y-axis.

[GUNFIRE]

What's going on?!

Now everything is okay. Don't
worry about it.

It sounds like somebody's
shooting out there!

Debbie, everything is fine.
Stay in your seat.

[GUNFIRE]

Everyone back in your seats!

Cops aren't here yet.

Bring 'em in.

Get in here!

Hurry up!

You two, pull out the chair!

[SIRENS] Now!

[SIRENS]

Start tying up the teacher!

[SIRENS]

[SIRENS, DOGS BARKING]

Where's your brother?

Just please...stop.

Are you telling us what to do
now?

Did you forget what happened to
you the last time?

You guys can't actually think
any of this is right!

Let Jesus in! Let Him take the
anger out!

Still running your stupid
little mouth, huh?

I'm sick of you!

Listen, Michael. Stop.

[GUNFIRE]

I'm sick of everybody trying to
tell me what to do.

Even just this morning my Dad
was trying to boss me around.

Yeah. Yeah I know you have
issues with your Dad.

Don't talk about my Dad.

Michael, Jesus...

Jesus can take the pain away.

[GUNFIRE]

Waste 'em.

[GUNFIRE]

Why would you guys do this?!

On your knees.

No.

Where's your God now, huh?

He's here.

He wants you to know that He
sent Jesus on the cross

so you could have a new life,
Michael.

Jesus loves you, Bro.

I hate you. [GUNSHOT]

[PHONE RINGING]

I've got it.

[PHONE RINGING]

Hello.

Yeah. Hold on.

Yes?

Jason?!

No!!!

[AMBULANCE SIREN]

So...how's Rachel doing?

What?

Rachel. How is she?

I don't know. I haven't talked
to her recently.

I thought you liked her.

She's a good friend. That's
about it.

Well, I just know...
Mom and Dad...

are hoping that you two will
uh...

Well, no not hoping. More like
expecting

you two to...well...you know.

What? Become a couple?

I didn't know that.
But, like I said...

She's a good friend. That's
about it.

Well all I know is she's got a
huge crush on you.

I'm waiting for God to send me
the right one.

And when He does, I'll know.

Sure you haven't missed it yet?

Oh I'm sure.

Come on. Is that all you've got?

[NEWS PLAYING ON TV IN

Thank you for coming.

I can.

Evil runs rampant.

It took the poor souls

and left them beyond salvation.

Hello. I'm Dr. Williams. I'm
sorry to keep you waiting.

Is my son going to be okay?

At this point in time, I
honestly don't know.

The bullet went deep into his
chest,

nearly piercing his
heart.

Another inch and he wouldn't
have made it.

He's a very lucky young man.

He's blessed.

God was watching out for him.

I certainly hope so.
Nonetheless...

he's in need of another
transfusion.

He lost a considerable amount
of blood.

I'll give you whatever you
need. I'm his twin, so...

...please just save my brother!

Thank you. Come with me.

Mom, I need to go get some air.

Hello. I'm Chaplain Constant.

Oh. Pleased to meet you.

Hi. If there is anything I can
do for you, please let me know.

Please pray.

I will.

Dear Jesus,

Please heal Jason.

God please don't take him away
from me.

I just wanted to check on you,
make sure everything's alright.

I'm holding up.

Of that I have no doubt.

In the short time I've known
you,

I've quickly learned how strong
you are.

I certainly don't feel like it
right now.

You are, whether you know it or
not.

Thanks, Abel.

We should go inside.

It's going to rain soon.

I can smell it in the air.

[GASPING FOR AIR]

Mom. Mom! It just hurts.

Jason. Lay back down. You've
been through so much!

I remember...I remember
everything.

It was horrible.

Jason, we don't need to hear
about it right now, okay?

It can wait.

No! No.

I can't.

They put me on my knees.

They asked me, "Where is your
God now?"

I'll be okay for now.

Isaac, go get the nurse!

Thank you. Thanks for not
judging me.

I made a lot of mistakes.

This whole...

this whole month I've been,
I've been living a lie.

I've done drugs, and
alcohol...and pornography.

It infected my soul.

Jason, that's all over with now.

You're forgiven.

Please forgive me.

I'd have been, I'd have been 18
in just a few weeks.

I...I was praying,

I was praying that when I
turned 18, I'd have a new life.

You will have a new life, Jason.

A new life.

Mom, Jules, Isaac,

I see Dad.

I see Jesus.

They're waiting for me.

No! Come back to me!

It has been said that it's a
dark day when parents

have to lay their child to rest

instead of them.

It doesn't seem fair.

Not even right.

Why did God do this?

Why not me instead?

It also makes us

think about our own faith and
trust in God's Word

and in His plan.

Jesus said in John,

chapter 14, verses 1 and 2,

"Do not let your hearts be
troubled.

Trust in God. Trust also in Me."

Today we are here to
celebrate...

surely a very cherished life
and a very blessed life.

But we are also here to
mourn...how this life ended.

Brothers and sisters, this is a
sign of the times, indeed...

when children take the lives
of other children.

Jason's loss reminds us of the
suffering

that we must all endure.

Yet we should know that

our brother, Jason Oscar, is
not truly dead.

No, he walks now with our Lord,
Jesus Christ.

And he dances through the
fields of heaven.

And while we say goodbye on
earth today, it's...

it's only for now.

For the day will come when

each and every one of us will
see him once again.

But until that day comes...we
must continue.

How could this happen?

It's a real tragedy, Son.

We must pray for his family.

It just doesn't seem real to me.

I know. I understand.

Psalms 90 says the days of our
lives are numbered...

seventy to eighty years.

What happened to him?

Jesus probably wanted him in
heaven for a great reason.

[SIGHS]

Abel.

Antonio. Sorry I'm late.

No problem.

How are you doing?

I'm good. How are you?

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent!

I have amazing news for you!

Yeah? What is it?

Yeah.

The producer that I was working
with

has an offer that you cannot
refuse.

It's a lead role in his new
movie.

Yeah! And you know...it's based
on Adam Spring's best seller.

Yeah. The newest one.

No. I don't want to do that.

All of his movies are the
same--

a fantastic love story that ends
up in tragedy and revenge.

I told you

I only want to do movies that
are hopeful and inspiring.

You haven't even heard the
offer.

It's a lot of money, Abel. A
lot of money!

You know I don't care about
that.

God has always provided for me.

You...you...you're hurting your
career, Abel.

For real.

If those are the kind of roles
I have to take to further

my career, I am fine with it
being at a standstill.

Now can we eat?

I still have to pack.

Oh...yeah...that's right.

I hear it's going to be a great
show.

Waitress!

Can I have a drink? A real one!
Not water.

You want a drink? Aah, you
don't drink.

borders to other nations!

...to welcome other people and

[CROWD CHEERING]

[GUNFIRE]

[SCREAMS OF PAIN]

[GUNFIRE, BREAKING GLASS]

You can't go out there!

Are you kidding me?! They're
killing people! Come on.

Shoot!

All of you! Come with me.

[GUNFIRE, BREAKING GLASS]

Stay here!

[GUNFIRE, BREAKING GLASS,
PEOPLE WAILING]

They're taking them away!

Stay here where it's safe!
Please. Sir.

[SOUNDS OF DESTRUCTION OUTSIDE]

Here. Let me help you clean up.

[SWEEPING BROKEN GLASS]

You should leave. You know,

this happens so often in this
town that nowhere is safe.

That'll change soon...I promise.

Murderers and monsters run free
in the streets. I...

I don't see how.

God will bring change to your
city.

And there will be peace on your
streets once again.

All you have to do is pray.

That's all? Pray?

Yes.

Pray and God will put love into
their hearts.

I will not pray! I...I'm sorry.

This is lovely.

You can have it. My gift to you.

[ABEL SINGING AT CONCERT]

Dad used to bring us here a lot
when we were little.

I don't remember him at all.

You were really young.

But he used to carry you and
Jason in either arm. He was...

He was so proud of you boys.

Both of you.

You know...thinking of
Jason...it hurts. You know?

Sometimes...

Sometimes I just feel like
giving up.

I'm sorry.

Abel. What a surprise!

Did I call at a bad time?

No! No...not at all!

Were you writing?

I was trying to. Ended up
daydreaming.

Well, I just got back from
Manila last night.

I just wanted to call and check
in on you.

Yeah...I'm, I'm hurting.

But...I probably will be for a
while.

I understand. I really do.
Just...

keep your faith in God
and He'll heal your wounds.

I know, Abel. It's...

really sweet of you to call
and make sure that I'm okay.

I also wanted to call and tell
you I have a surprise for you.

You do? You shouldn't have.

Well I did. If you want to come
down to the church

Well...well okay, then.
I...I'll be right down.

All right. I can't wait. See
you soon.

Rachel, so happy that you are
here.

I hope you're staying because
we have great plans for tonight.

Good. I'm excited.

[HAPPY CHATTER]

Hey, Mom.

Hey hi, Sweetie. How are you?

Hey..Abel! You're back!

Abel.

Oh. Rachel.

You can't say hello to me
anymore?

Sorry.

Is that for me?

Oh this?

No.

I'm sorry.

So...no present for me and you
didn't even invite me along?

Listen...I was pressed for
time. But maybe next time...

...you can come with me, okay?

You weren't kidding about
coming here.

No. I'm a woman of my word.

Indeed you are.

Well...I hope you like what I
brought you back.

I'm sure I will...

Abel...

So you like it then?

I didn't know if you would.

Its gorgeous!. I love it.

You really didn't have to do
this.

No, I did. You needed a reason
to smile.

[PHONE RINGING]

Hello.

Juliet.

I'm sorry.

Caleb?

I was wrong to judge you. And
honestly,

I started going to church.

Really?

Are...are you being serious?

Absolutely!

I read your book.

It touched me in a way that I
never thought possible.

Her faith in God,

through everything that she was
going through...

It really touched my heart.

Wow. I don't, I don't know what
to say.

Juliet, I...

I...

I...I want to tell you...

I love you.

I always have.

Uh...Mmm...Uh..Uh

That's really sweet, Caleb.

I love somebody else.

He's gone!!!!

Mom?

Juliet, you are all I have left!

Wha', what are you talking
about?

Isaac is gone!

[ANGUISHED TEARS]

Mom...I will find him!

I will find him!

Poor Juliet.

I just got a phone call that
her brother just...ran away.

Ooh...

I gotta help look for him.

But where are you going to find
him?

I know some places I can look.

Oh Jesus have mercy on Isaac.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

Abel.

Look.

Can we just park here?

I've gotta take this. I'll just
be a minute.

That's the easiest shot.

You still ain't going to make
it. Heh.

Yeah, right. Watch this...

Seems like you have a staring
problem.

Yo. Yo.

I'm sorry. It looked like you
guys could...help me.

Maybe.

It's gonna cost you.

How much?

How much you got?

If I give you guys 100 bucks,
will that work?

All right. That's cool.

Who you looking for?

This guy right here.

Haven't seen him. Is he new?

Let me see that.

And who should I ask for when I
call?

It's Juliet.

Rickie.

Victor.

It's nice to meet you.

Hey!

Isaac!

Isaac.

Thought you were somebody else.

[PLAYS A COUPLE OF NOTES]

[MUSIC PLAYING]

[MUSIC STOPS]

Did you forget about practice?

I'm sorry.

I forgot.

We need to talk.

About what?

Never mind. Um. Let's get right
to practice.

Can we start with my favorite
song?

Yeah.

That is not my favorite song,
Abel.

I've told you it a thousand
times.

I'll never let you go.

Oh yeah.

My mistake.

Spirit of God...I come to
worship You...

I live to worship You.

I live to love you. I live to
love you.

Rachel, what are you doing?

I love you, Abel. I always have.

I need to know if you love me.

Rachel...

You're like a little sister to
me.

I'm not your sister.

I need you.

I love somebody else.

It's Juliet.

Isn't it?

[CRYING]

What did you do to her?

Nothing.

Its just a misunderstanding.

Yeah I've heard that before.

What's wrong?

Do you want to talk about it?

Well if I tell you,

you have to promise.

You can't tell anyone.

Yeah. Promise.

Well...I...I...I'm pregnant.

What?

That's why I left home. I had
to come here

because my parents would never
let me get an abortion.

An abortion?! Are you crazy?!

Don't you have any fear of God?

I can't do this.

Fear of God? I don't care!

...I can't have this baby!

I thought that he loved me and
that he was the one and

that he was going to marry me,
but

he had another girl so so much
for love.

Don't have an abortion. God
will help you. I will help you.

Yo. Abel.. Sorry we're late,
Bro.

So you guys said you had news
for me?

Yeah, we do.

I want to ask you something.

Sure. What is it?

Do you love Juliet?

I bet you do.

You lucky man...

I don't call that luck. I call
it blessed.

What's your news?

He's been hanging out over by
5280.

He's pretty much been there
every other night.

He looks pitiful.

What time is it.

Time to eat?

All right.

Let's go get some food.

It looks like they are going to
be closing soon.

I know.

Maybe he switched places...

I'm sorry Juliet.

It's not your fault.

We should probably just go home.

Hey!

Stop!

You don't want to do this.

You wanna die instead?!

Gimme the knife, man.

Stay out of this! This punk
stole my rocks!

You're going to kill him over
drugs?!

Please don't let him kill me.

This ain't over yet!

Thank You, Jesus, for saving my
life!

He gave you a second chance.

Stop the drugs, man.

Get right with God.

We must intercede for our
nation.

We want to thank God.

He has given our nation a
second chance.

Amen.

The past year has been one of
great change.

But He will...send the latter
rain.

Gentlemen...Brothers...Let's
pray.

We are here to pray for our
country.

Our nation is about ready to go
through a tremendous change.

We must pray.

Whatcha thinkin?

Just concerned.

Yeah. Me, too.

Feels like something bad's
going to happen.

So you believe your father?

Have you ever known him to be
wrong?

We should go back inside.

Come on.

[MISSILES OVERHEAD]

PASTOR DANIEL: Disaster!
Disaster! Disaster!

Now if we do not turn to God,

then judgment is surely on its
way.

Mom! Mom, we've got to go!

[AIR RAID SIRENS]

[POUNDING ON SHELTER DOOR] Abel!

Abel come on!

Abel, please!

Listen, Juliet.

Mom, go!

I'm glad you're here, okay.

Abel, I need to tell you
something!

Come on!!!

[INDISTINCT SOUNDS]

Dad!

So glad you made it here!

So glad you made it safely.

Ladies and Gentlemen. This just
in...

This time we are now confirming
a detonation

in the greater Los Angeles
area, roughly one hour ago

Water?

I don't want water!

I want to know why this has
happened to this country!

I want to know why this has
happened to us in America!

Where's the President?

[MANY VOICES] Yeah!

President of the United States?!

The person who has the power to
stop this!

Why is God doing this to this
nation?!

God didn't do this to this
nation. We did.

What? How?! what did we do?

We have forsaken God. We turned
away from God.

[GUITAR STRUMMING]

[MUSIC PLAYING]

Hey. I've been looking for you.

I've been worried.

Why have you been worried?

Because I care.

You should really go inside.
It's not safe out.

Rachel, could you take her
downstairs...

to get this looked at?

What's your name?

Daisy. What's your name?

My name is Rachel.

Do you like bubblegum?

Yeah.

A detonation, followed by a
sweeping attack across

the United States, including
Boston, New York,

Chicago, Houston, and right
here in Denver.

At this time, we do not know
who the attackers are,

or who they are affiliated
with, but the

National Guard has been
activated. The Federal Emergency

Management Agency is advising
everyone to stay in their homes

or find a private residence or
shelter that is well stocked.

I'm sorry. We don't have more
for you at this time.

But I promise, we will bring
you the news as it comes.

Hey. Are you sure you want to
do this alone?

I have to go find my brother! I
have to!

I understand.

Just call me the instant you
need anything and I'll be there.

I know. We will find your
brother. I promise.

Thank you.

My fellow Americans.

I come to you tonight to bring
positive news into your homes.

Those who have chosen to attack
the United States of America

are being dealt with swift
justice.

As we speak, our armies are
pushing back the enemy who

chose to step on our soil.

While this war moves towards
victory,

a state of emergency still
exists.

Isaac!

Isaac!

Please Isaac!

Can you help me?!
-I'm sorry. I can't.

I didn't do anything, but
please help me.

Please!
-Buy yourself some food alright?

Please just go.

Isaac no! You have to come home
with me.

I can't go home yet. I'm a
mess. OK?

I need time to clean up.
Besides...

I'll go home when I'm ready.

Whatever you are looking for,
it isn't here.

Look around you.

Nothing is going to change.
It's only going to get worse.

I can't go home.

This is God's fault!

This is His fault that Jason
and Dad are gone!

No. God didn't do this.

The devil did. He steals and
kills.

But why does He let me suffer
so much?

Isaac...

it's you that brought on the
suffering.

I mean, ever since you turned
your back on God,

you have been... starving and
hurting

You just need to come home.

Could you forgive me?

Isaac of course I forgive you.

Let's go home.

BISHOP PORTER:
We want to thank God.

He has given our nation a
second chance.

The past year has been one of
great change.

But He will...send the latter
rain.

Oh, please don't stop. That was
lovely.

So who were you singing to, Son?

Nobody.

Hmm.

Is that a ring?

All right. Let's share.

So who is it for?

Somebody special.

Really?

Well I'd very much like to meet
that someone special.

You will soon, Dad.

I promise.

Three years ago

I saw a girl in the sunset.

And for 3 years, that girl has
not left my mind.
