If you enjoy stories of real people that encourage your Christian faith, this movie will "float your boat." I especially enjoy stories that give insight into periods of history and this one entertains and inspires on both levels.

Amazing what can happen when we just plant that seed of faith and allow God to direct our lives.

What a lot of white racism and Christian dogma portrayed in this dvd. The whites take the land from the native Africans and then expect their faith in a White Christian god to protect their crops and them from being murdered. While I believe in faith, this film 'whitewashes' the truth of racism, ethnocentrism, dominance over native cultures, and assumed superiority over native people's. This movie made me cringe with the blindness of color, socioeconomic assumed superiority and dominance as a right over other people. Don't believe it? Why when the 'miracle' is being shown, the white man is just standing there while the black man's the one digging up the potatoes doing the labor and getting dirty? Not buying it.

A great movie. Watching the first about 30 to 45 minutes was hard, seemingly not important, but cogent to the movie and to the miracle that changed Angus in one moment. Just when I was ready to stop watching it, the miracle occurred. Faith is indeed as tangible as a potato. The included documentary is also well worth watching..

Great movie. It was hard to watch in the beginning, but the family pulled through with faith.

Well. The first 20 minutes were very difficult for us to watch as it dealt with the poor treatment and low regard white South Africans have for the black South Africans. I was ready to turn it off but decided to sit through to the 30 minute mark. It was worth it. The story this man's struggle to come to terms with his life and find God was interesting. It was a bit in your face at times but over all enjoyable. I am a spiritual being with no religious affiliation so for me it was a story about accepting we have no color in front of God and that treating others as you would be treated goes a long way. Having said this, I was appalled at how women and blacks were depicted in this film. We have many friends from South Africa and they assure us it is this way. Living in fear and surrounded by discrimination it's no wonder people that can afford to leave come to Canada. This film is a brief moment of what it would be like.
