Based on the powerful memoir, this inspirational movie tells the true story of how a young mother was helped captive by an escaped convict and how she turned to Rick Warren's "The Purpose Driven Life" for guidance and hope. Her faith and her determination led her to escape not only her captor but her addiction to meth. Ashley Smith was an addict, her husband was dead, her child taken away, and she thought her life couldn't get any worse. She had no idea how to turn her life around, then one night a murderous felon held her captive in her own apartment and with the help of "The Purpose Driven Life" they each decide to stop running. Brian Nichols decided to stop running from the law and Ashley Smith stopped running from her denial and decided to face her addiction head on. The movie follows the book fairly closely but doesn't emphasize the religious aspect as much. It's still powerful, although with a PG-13 rating, this inspirational true story won't reach as wide of an audience as many other religious movies do.
