Billionaire Red Stevens wants to bequeath at least one member of his extended family "the ultimate gift:" something he perceives as immensely more valuable than material wealth. Jason holds a deep-seated hatred for his newly-deceased grandfather, so he's surprised to learn that he's been mentioned in his late grandfather's will. Far from a straightforward gift, Red's bequest comes in the form of a series of mysterious recorded instructions, the first of which requires Jason to hop on a plane for Texas the very next morning without a hint of the trip's purpose. Dropped into a ranch in the middle of nowhere, Jason's encounters the first real manual labor he's ever done in his life. When he returns from Texas, Jason finds his home cleared out, his car confiscated, and instructions to produce one true friend. While Jason is reduced to sleeping in the park, a young child and her mother make his acquaintance and lead him to re-examine his personal prejudices and perceptions of what's truly important in life.

Definitely one of my favorite movies, and I have watched it more than 1x over the years !!
So glad that I got to see & hear the author, Jim Stovall, speak in my home town of Tulsa, OK where he lives too. And he is on the radio every TH am there for about 15 minutes. I read his 1st book, “You Don’t Have to Be Blind to See” back in the 1980’s, I think ... it was a really good motivational story & book. Jim is a world reknown motivavational speaker who has interviewed a large number of very famous people all over the world. His books & movies & personal story are so positive & motivational !! Check out his website.

FYI - Be sure to look for him in this movie playing the main character’s chauffeur. He plays that role in several of his movies ... clever, since he has been blind since his 20’s ... after he had already become an Olympic power lifter !! Jim has accomplished so much in his life.

Entertaining movie, although predictable. Similar to the Hallmark Hall of Fame feel-good movies.

Excellent movie. I have watched it several times, and never fail to be emotionally moved by a powerful and unusual story.

Such a wonderful compliment to the book. There are not many movies that I enjoy along with the book, but this is one of those exceptions.

This movie was very well done and presented in a way that all families would enjoy.

Make sure you have your tissues handy though.
