Gallows Road Is A Powerful Movie About Redemption And Forgiveness

Loss and heartbreak challenges one man to forgive the unforgivable

A faith-based film about loss and heartbreak that challenges one man to forgive the unforgivable releases exclusively at select Ster-Kinekor cinemas on Friday, 07 April. Set in the rustic backdrop of rural Texas, Gallows Road explores how tragedy, heartbreak and the choices we make impact our lives and those around us in unimaginable ways.

Bob Collins has it all: a loving wife, two children who adore him and a younger brother and business partner, Seth. God is good to Bob and life is happy. Bob and Seth are just one day away from making their dream of opening an antique store come true. And, this is not just any antique store, but one that was previously owned by the local sheriff’s brother, who has two wayward sons, Snake and Matty. Trouble begins.

Jake Knight is a man searching for a purpose, unsure of his role both as a husband and a father. He has a beautiful wife and two children yet he chooses to spend most of his time with the brotherhood, Snake and Matty. This choice causes Jake to get off course and head down the wrong road. One of his only hopes and saving grace is his boss Frank, a good friend offering both steady work at the stables and spiritual advice. But more often than not, Jake’s search seems to end at the bottom of a bottle.

In Gallows Road, an unthinkable crime will draw these two men together and change their lives forever. Who will choose love over hate, forgiveness over revenge? And who will rise to the light… or face the walk down Gallows Road?

Winner of the 2015 International Christian Film Festival, the film is directed by Bill McAdams Jr., who also stars in it alongside Ernie Hudson and Kevin Sorbo, among others. The running time is 105 mins, and the classification is 13 DV.
