The film Voiceless hits the big screen in theaters nationwide October 7 th. Writer/director Pat Necerato says the movie tackles the hot-button issue of abortion – but the underlying theme of this project, he says, is about doing what’s right.
“We’re using the pro-life message as a strong example in the film with the abortion clinic being across the street from a church and our main character trying to take a stand against that but the movie is really about his personal journey to have to get up the nerve and the guts to obey God and to take action and to take that stand.” http://voicelessthemovie.com
WATCH THE TRAILER:
Necerato believes Voiceless will challenge Christians to make a difference in the world around them.
Jesse Dean is a recently discharged soldier who had a rough upbringing, but because of his wife, found God and now is totally devoted to his faith.
Jesse and wife move to Philadelphia so he can take a new job as an outreach leader at an old church whose membership has been declining. As everything is going well and as he starts connecting to the community, he discovers there’s an abortion clinic directly across the street from the church.
He goes to the pastor and to several others in the church and tries to get their help to no avail. One day something tragic and personal happens to him while he’s going about his everyday routine. He comes to the point that he begins to take action himself. He gets involved but the more involved he gets, the more resistance he gets from those in church and community. His wife, who thinks his actions will get him fired or land him in jail, also comes against him.
Finally, it comes down to him having to make a choice: is he going to take the easy way out and back off, which is what everyone wants him to do, or will he face a major confrontation which will require him to put everything on the line…not just his job, but his freedom and marriage as well.
This film encourages people to stand up for what they know is right, particularly as it pertains to taking God’s truths into society to address social issues. It addresses the spirit of retreat as it pertains to engaging the culture that has developed within the Church.
