If you were not able to see the WHERE HOPE GROWS trailer at the BOOST Conference, we definitely recommend viewing it below.
BOOST Collaborative's Breakfast Club Blog Manager Kristin Stayer had the pleasure of interviewing Chris Dowling, Writer/Director for the movie, which comes out in theaters on May 15.
Dowling provides an insight into working with someone for the first time who has special needs and what he learned as a result of this uplifting experience.
Thank you for all that you do to support the children, youth, families, and communities that you serve.
Together we make a difference.
Tia Quinn, Founder/CEO
WHERE HOPE GROWS- A Conversation with Chris Dowling
Calvin Campbell is a former professional baseball player sent to an early retirement due to his panic attacks at the plate. Even though he had all the talent for the big leagues, he struggles with the curveballs life has thrown him. Today, he mindlessly sleepwalks through his days and the challenge of raising his teenager daughter. His life is in a slow downward spiral when it is suddenly awakened and invigorated by the most unlikely person – Produce, a young-man with Down syndrome who works at the local grocery store.
Calvin slowly loses the chip on his shoulder as he begins to experience the world through Produce's eyes. Faith, work, purpose and most importantly family, blossom into Calvin's life as their friendship develops. The unlikely pair becomes intertwined giving Calvin's life new meaning and purpose, but unfortunately leads to tragedy due to single decision echoed from Calvin's past.
