The Ride, A Christmas Eve Parable

A picture of true hope is about to be revealed—to those who aren't even looking for it. 

It's Christmas Eve in the suburbs of Chicago and a bored, disengaged taxi driver reluctantly accepts one more pickup. He soon realizes his passenger is troubled and prolongs the ride in an uncharacteristic attempt to connect and help. As the night progresses, grace invades the hearts of both the comfortable and the desolate. 

Directed by Dallas Jenkins (What if...) and winner of the TAFF 2013 Best Film Award, The Ride has already brought church audiences to their feet and impacted thousands.
