This inspirational film comes from the makers of Faith Like Potatoes and Journey to Grace.
"Francois is a hard-working husband and dad that gets laid off from his job. None of his efforts to get another job succeed, and he is forced to use what he has, including an old bicycle, in order to provide for his family. With the help of his "black sheep" brother, a bicycle shop owner and a pro-cyclist, Francois makes some life-changing discoveries about his life, career and faith in God.
Although a fictional story, BREAK AWAY, was inspired by true events around the recession that left people without work. The message brings hope and offers practical and Biblical solutions in a very entertaining way."

With so many people losing their jobs and finding themselves at a crosswinds, wondering what they will do with this life. This inspirational movie follow a family and middle-age man as he goes from a steady, well-paid job to having to use a bicycle to provide for his family. He develops a love for bicycling and decides to enter a race. With the help of his brother, his faith in God, and his own determination, he begins to train and prove everyone wrong. Don't worry, I will not spoil the ending. :-)
The overall message of hope and perseverance can be seen in this film, as well as references to have we sometimes have to put our faith in God, and know that He has a plan for us. Even if it doesn't look like, and we feel like we are stuck up against a wall, we have a purpose in life, and things work out, if we left them. I have watched a handful of inspirational movies lately, but have to say that one really moved me, and was very good for a low-budget movie. If you are looking for a great family-friendly movie to share with your family, why not pre-order a copy of this film now?
