"Beautifully Broken" movie posterA new film is coming to theaters nationwide on Friday (August 24) that demonstrates the power of forgiveness and the love of family.

"Beautifully Broken" tells the story of an American father consumed with his wealthy business and an African father fleeing genocide, and how their pursuits and passions impact their families. (See official trailer below)

Veteran musician Michael W. Smith, who plays a pastor in the film, tells OneNewsNow why he wanted to be involved.

"I just thought it was a remarkable story, that happens to be true, of three families from two different worlds and one incredible story. I just think it's amazing," he says. "And the fact that this one guy, from one of the families, barely escaped the genocide of Rwanda. I mean, really lucky to be alive and ends up in my hometown of Nashville, Tennessee."

The connection between families is the child sponsorship program from Compassion International. Smith is a longtime supporter of Compassion. 

Smith says "Beautifully Broken" demonstrates how God can turn tragedy into good.

"The movie shows the power of forgiveness and reconciliation," Smith says. "And to watch these families just love each other, and walk through just the stuff that they go through, and then the outcome of what God does through all this stuff. So I'm glad I got to be a part of it. I really am."
