This powerful allegory helps families understand the spiritual journey is the most important journey in life, as well as the importance of sticking to the path, even when the journey gets difficult. The movie is rated PG (There are scenes that include demons and a battle with Apollyon). We encourage you and your family to join in the adventure.

Then, there is an opportunity to talk with other widowed people about what you learned. (There’s no pressure to share!)
