    Looking for a modern day retelling of the prodigal son? Then you just might want to take a look at Word Films newest DVD, A Long Way Off. It begins with the Abraham family who is in the farming business that employs two sons, Seth (DAVE BLAMY/Army Wives), the eldest and Jake (JASON BURKEY/October Baby), the youngest. Seth understands that hard work is required in order to make a family farm successful even in tough economic times. He is the one that has stayed behind to help his father out, while Jake left to seek a higher education in college. Even though Jake returns, his heart isn't interested in farming any longer. He believes he is wasting his college talent trying to update the farming business.

    His lack of responsibility is apparent to everyone, when Jake shows up late and updates the invoicing system against his fathers wishes, costing them more than just a loss of business. No matter how hard Jake tries, he wants out and if his father won't support him, he will quit and find another way. But like the father in the biblical sense, Mr. Abraham (JOHN DIEHL/Stargate) gives Jake his inheritance to find a life that suits him better. Armed with more money than he knows what to do with, Jake leaves his family behind in attempts to prove them all wrong and become a successful businessman and financial consultant. But the world is a big place filled with people who are just as selfish as Jake and will stop at nothing to ensure that they make as much money off of Jake as they can when they see his financial investments are paying off. But life isn't about to turn out like Jake wanted and soon he will bite off more than he can chew.

    I received A Long Way Off compliments of Word Films and Edify Media Inc for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions contained here are strictly my own. While this DVD is Dove Foundation Approved, I would caution parents that this might not be suitable for the entire family. There are parts of the movie where Jake encounters Laura, an up and coming actress who wants Jake to invest in her upcoming movie and promises him "anything" for his financing. There is considerable drinking, hard partying, and the impression that Jake's relationship with Laura questionable who seduces him to get what she wants. Parental guidance is suggested, although it does portray a modern day retelling of the prodigal son who rises to the top only to lose it all in the end. I would rate this one a 4 out of 5 stars and the lesson you take away from this one is timeless and that a family's love is always unconditional.
