About Abel's Field
Left motherless by tragedy and abandoned by his father, high school senior Seth McArdle (Samuel Davis) faces enormous pressure as he strives to support his little sisters. At school, he endures the daily bullying of the football team. But fighting back only finds him singled out for punishment and assigned to an after-school work detail under the supervision of the reserved groundskeeper, Abel (SOUL SURFER’S Kevin Sorbo). Much to his surprise, Seth discovers that Abel may be the only one who truly understands his struggles. As dark times lure Seth toward desperate measures, the reluctant Abel may be the one person who can point him back toward the light.
This movie caught our attention from the start, had us both cheering and sitting on the edge of our seat. The story was excellent, as was the acting. It's a rare movie, with a good moral and clean language. If you have the opportunity, I strongly encourage you to rent or buy this one. You can check out the trailer here. It's available on digital or DVD on January 22.
