John Light was one of the most dangerous prisoners in Arizona’s State Penitentiary.  He was a legendary local bar room brawler who surprisingly finds God in a prison Bible study. Now reformed, John must face life on the outside as a new man in Christ. His only allies are the Good Lord and a meek and mild mentor who has never thrown a punch in his life. 

Will he survive? 


Here's what we know....  1 in 104 Americans are incarcerated!  That's 2.2 MILLION sons & daughters and moms & dads away from their families.  This year over 600,000 of these people will re-enter communities. Are they ready?  As Christians we believe that Jesus—Himself brought to trial, executed, buried, and brought to life again—offers hope, healing, and a new purpose for each life.  That's what this film is all about.


Partnered with a man who has never thrown a punch in his life, John engages in the one battle that he cannot win on his own.
