UNCONDITIONAL - INSPIRED BY TRUE EVENTS
Unconditional, starring Lynn Collins (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 50 First Dates, and The Lake House) and Michael Ealy (Think Like a Man, Seven Pounds, 2 Fast 2 Furious, and Barbershop) releases in theaters September 21, and encourages viewers to make a difference in their own communities through its ACT campaign.
Written and directed by Brent McCorkle, the film tells the story of Samantha Crawford (Lynn Collins), an acclaimed storybook artist, who seemingly had it all until she lost the love she cherished the most. When Sam’s storybook marriage is ripped away from her, she loses her faith and her will to live. Now fighting with despair, Samantha is obsessed with tracking down the murderer of her husband. However, a death-defying encounter with two children leads to a reunion with her oldest friend, Joe Bradford (Michael Ealy)… and begins Sam’s journey back toward God’s Unconditional love.
Slowly dying of kidney disease, “Papa” Joe spends his last days serving fatherless children in the under- resourced community where he lives. Observing “Papa” Joe’s tireless love for “his” kids, Sam begins to find new purpose…until she comes face to face with her biggest fear. While she’s drawn to the innocence and hope of a child she’s befriended, the opportunity for revenge is strong.
Modeled after the real-life of “Papa” Joe, Unconditional serves not only to entertain but also inspire moviegoers to serve in areas of need just like Joe Bradford. Currently, Joe Bradford serves seven at-risk communities in and around Nashville through his ministry Elijah’s Heart. It is through this ministry that he champions a citywide multi-racial choir and coordinates walks of love where food and clothing are provided to those in need.
“My dream is that Unconditional inspires cities to unite in love to rescue one of our most precious commodities: thousands of at-risk and fatherless children torn by poverty and oppression,” says Bradford.
