About Abel's Field
Left motherless by tragedy and abandoned by his father, high school senior Seth McArdle (Samuel Davis) faces enormous pressure as he strives to support his little sisters. At school, he endures the daily bullying of the football team. But fighting back only finds him singled out for punishment and assigned to an after-school work detail under the supervision of the reserved groundskeeper, Abel (SOUL SURFER’S Kevin Sorbo). Much to his surprise, Seth discovers that Abel may be the only one who truly understands his struggles. As dark times lure Seth toward desperate measures, the reluctant Abel may be the one person who can point him back toward the light.
As I watched this movie with my husband and kids I kept thinking about how teens these days are constantly complaining about how bad they have it. Teens these days have Iphones, Ipads, Ipods and all other types of computers and game systems. They drive nice cars when they get their license and they tend to be really spoiled. Yet they always seem to complain when they don't get their way or don't get something that they want.
The young man in this movie is only 17, he is raising his 7-yr old twin sisters, going to high school and having to work. He has a half-brother that will not help him in any way and this guy is really struggling. But in all that he has going on, he does not complain. He, of course, is not really happy about the situation but he does what he has to do to raise his sisters and make life for them as normal as possible. He makes a lot of sacrifices that most teens would not do for their family.
I totally recommend this movie to everyone! It is a great movie about sacrifice, family, friendships and finding faith in the least likely places.
