THE FILM

Did you know that that every 9 seconds, somewhere in the U.S., a woman is badly beaten. Even worse, every day 3 women are murdered by a man who had promised to love them. And how sad it is to know that living in an abusive home emotionally scars little girls and boys for life. We've decided to do something about it.

Lt. T.J. Goforth of the Monroe, NC, Police Department has shared publicly how she survived 5 years of domestic abuse as a young woman before making her escape.  Yet, what was most amazing is hearing how the near death experience of her friend, Megan, allowed T.J. to learn for the first time how important she really was to God. In a secret message from Megan, T.J. was miraculously given the self-confidence she needed to walk away from her abuser and totally turn her life around. Today, T.J. is a self-confident, decorated police officer who uses her story to inspire other suffering women with faith and hope - a hero who now puts violent abusers in jail.

When world famous speaker Bishop T.D. Jakes spoke in Charlotte last year, he requested an abuse survivor share the platform with him. T.J. was selected to appear with Bishop Jakes and her powerful story brought many in the audience to tears.

OUR GOAL

We want to tell this powerful and uplifting story of courage and hope to the world. It will first be made as a short film which we will enter in the 168 Film Project. Hosted in Los Angeles, the 168 is one of the world's biggest festival competitions for inspirational movies. The winner will be announced in August. The winning film will be awarded a $1,000,000 agreement with Echolight Studios to produce a feature film!

T.J.'s story inspires faith in everyone who hears it. Its a story that gives abuse victims the strength to escape their violent relationships. Our major goal is that we want to be able to share this film in order to help save the lives of suffering women and children.They need to know that THEIR LIVES MATTER!

To tell this powerful story in a creative and meaningful way, we've assembled a team of top film professionals! They bring a great mix of skill and experience! And our original theme song, "Chasers," is performed by Josiah Prince of the band, DISCIPLE!
