J. Lewis, becomes the victim of a drive by shooting. T. J. is left in a coma, fighting for his life.
A close knit set of his friends, known as the Frontier Boys; Jed, Brent, and Jackson were left to work out their own unanswered question as to "Why?" this happened to their friend T. J. Brian, left with his own secret, was drawn between loyalty to his brother and his loyalty to his friends; Jed with a determination to locate the driver of the car involved in the shooting, and Jackson filled with doubts about God.
I quickly found myself personally involved and inspired by the film. The casting is excellent, the characters well portrayed, which enhanced the action filled plot, building suspense right up to a climatic surprise ending. The dramatic dialog draws the spectator in emotionally. The film presents a strong Gospel Message without being "preachy." Other life lessons for building character are introduced through the basketball coach.
"The Frontier Boys" is family entertainment with a message of loyalty, friendship, and faith exemplified by camaraderie, parental love, and example.
