Fueled by revenge, Michael (Philip Bulcock) sets up a meeting at an out-of-the-way diner with the man who murdered his wife and child six years earlier. But his plans of killing him come to a sudden standstill when two gunmen burst in to rob the place. Michael takes matters into his own hands, shooting a robber and holding the entire diner hostage until the man he really wants to target arrives. In the midst of all these events, Michael finds an unlikely ally in Don (Kim Estes), a devout Christian who believes God is going to help him in his endeavor. While Michael battles with his faith, the hostages begin to find extraordinary connections between them. CROSSROAD is an emotional and inspiring story of redemption, forgiveness and the ultimate realization of God's grace at work in every life.
STORY BEHIND THE STORY
CROSSROAD Executive Producers David Dginguerian and Amy Weber a husband-and-wife team with business and entertainment success between them are a crossroad story of their own. Desiring to have children, doctors said it was impossible. But God had other plans, blessing them with twins. In grateful response, Dginguerian, a successful entrepreneur, committed to making a feature length faith film. It took three years, but working with Youssefian, also an executive producer, the result is CROSSROAD. And the kicker? Weber plays a featured role in the movie.
