A philandering husband (Greg Kinnear) volunteers at a homeless shelter in order to prove to his wife (Renée Zellweger) that he deserves a second chance. Later, she asks him to befriend a vagrant man whom she believes has a special destiny to fulfill (Djimon Hounsou). Jon Voight co-stars in this drama based on a true story, which was directed by Michael Carney.~Jack Rodgers
This is an excellent true story that I saw on Netflix and then knew I wanted to have it be part of my home collection.
It may seem to be a bit hard in the beginning, but that is because you're learning about the characters - in order to see how their lives change because one person was kind, loving, self-sacrificing, and willing to give family members and strangers a second and third chance.
