Disabled veteran, Trey Reynolds, begins an unusual pen pal friendship with a nun not of his time. This odd relationship is exactly what he needs to reacclimate into his life back home and find hope in something bigger than himself to help guide him back to his faith. He finds that peace and guidance in Sister Margaret by doing what seems to help most people of trauma, writing it all down for her. However, Sister Margaret’s fate has been set and their time together is running out.
Sister Margaret is fictional, as well, but her character is loosely based on one of the nuns whose tragic and true story has inspired many people around the world. In September of 1900, our nation’s worst natural disaster came in the form of a hurricane that flooded all of Galveston, Texas taking with it the 10 nuns and 90 orphans of St. Mary’s Orphanage.
This movie needs to be produced well, so it can spread to the masses not only what the nuns did for the orphans in an attempt to save them, but also so it can reveal the sacrifices that our military personnel and their families make for our country every day.
Hope and love are the themes of this story as we won’t give up until we heal our vets and inspire people to help others every chance they get.
As the author wrote in the book, “We are all called for something special in our lives, a way to help others when our moment arrives. However, not all have the courage to follow His plan. The nuns of St. Mary’s Orphanage did by doing all they knew to do to save the children when that devastating hurricane hit. Also, the protectors of our freedoms have that same courage as they risk their lives after deploying and leaving their own families for the sole purpose of helping us.”
Here is your chance to help a movie intent on honoring our fallen and help our veterans that struggle when they come home.
