“When you’ve lost everything will you still walk by faith?”
Synopsis: A young girl’s faith is tested when her parents are suddenly killed in a car accident and she’s forced to move in with relatives who don’t share her belief in God. A talented singer, who desires to worship God with her songs, she finds herself in a new city, a new school, and no friends. With her uncle and others at school challenging her faith, one boy emerges, who seems to see the greatness in her. Now she must come to grips with either fitting in or following God – which could cost her more than just her faith.
What do you do when the world you’ve always known suddenly disintegrates without any warning? You lose your parents, then leave your best friends to land in an alien world of people you don’t even know? Add to this tragedy one who is so bitter from the past he hates everything and everyone and you have a recipe for spiritual annihilation…
This is what happens to our main character Faith (Hayden Grace McCoy), who is thrown into this whirlwind of tragedy. A modern-day story of Job with intricate stories all working together to show and teach the audience what true faith is all about. This movie is more relatable to the human condition. And we will find the further into this movie we get, as her pastor said, “Faith wasn’t given that name for nothing.”
Faith comes from a Christian home with the foundation of the word beneath her feet. She has a beautiful voice and sings in the church choir. Singing is her strength in terms of getting her through this phase of her life that seems so unbelievable. Yet the enemy tried to silence that voice. She has pastors who genuinely care for her well-being, a church family behind her, and true friends who love her unconditionally.
Whoever watches this film will be able to relate to it on one level or another. There are three stories interwoven in this storyline. Faith’s tragedies, a pregnant girl abandoned by her father and friends, and a couple who experienced a loss so devastating that the hurt they feel overrides the faith in God they once had. And yet Faith, through example, in spite of her own condition touched each one of these lives with the love of God that is so compelling you can see their transformations in the midst of this film. Will they all have happy endings? You will just have to watch the movie to find out.

We give Faith’s Song
Although the topics in this movie may sound familiar the mechanics aren’t. Faith’s Song touches the viewer’s heart through tragic stories that are realistic and relatable. Frank Hutto did a beautiful and bold thing by — reaching out to people who are going through similar crises and instructing us not to judge. This film showed that the perpetrator and victim are not all too dissimilar: we are all suffering on one level or another, but it is only through God’s grace and those who seek Him, that one can overcome such trials.
In an era where villainy and darkness seem to take center stage, Faith’s Song does a phenomenal mental and spiritual reset pulling its audience out of that negative rabbit hole and placing their feet back onto the right path to the cross and trusting in God. Praise despite the pain is such a well-defined message in this movie.
This is not one of your blockbuster Hollywood Christian films with well-known actors—no it is a low-budget movie. But the importance of the message raises the quality of this film. And the message is clear, powerful, and moving on both a spiritual and mental level: HAVE FAITH! Have faith when times are troubling. Have faith in the struggle. Have faith when your heart is breaking. Have faith in the storm.
