Trey finds it hard to cope with his fathers death and is struggling in his daily life as well as in school. Trey’s teacher is concerned and decides to have him go and meet Roy; a fire chief who has been devastated by the death of his own son also a firefighter in the 9-11 attacks. When the two first meet there is quite a bit of awkward tension as neither of them really know why they were paired together by Trey’s teacher. They soon learn however that they have a lot more in common than they originally thought.
Throughout the movie Trey and Roy deal with a series of different personal conflicts as well as external conflicts and end up building a strong friendship that not only begins to help them cope and heal from their tragic losses but also helps to build their character and their faith. The themes and principles expressed by this movie have a strong biblical base and you are not left guessing what the moral of the story is.
Aside from some very minor violence depicted (car accident), the use of the word “Butt” and some marital kissing.51 Hill is a clean movie with a great message and good lessons to learn, that is safe for the whole family to watch and enjoy. The quality of the movie and the acting is really well done, and the script was really well put together. Overall this is a great movie with Christian themes and values wrapped up into a powerful and compelling story.
