As the film develops, the life and personal examples of Brochero, The Cura Gaucho, will constantly exhort Luciano's current lifestyle and mindset to be revised, which leads to a crisis in his innermost nature that will force him to reconsider sever al aspects of his life. At the end of the movie, Luciano decides to take up the Spiritual Exercises recommended by Brochero as a means to change a person's life.

The Sereer: Desperately Trying to Please God
Ken Beale
United States
The Sereer people groups live in an ancient culture that was historically steeped in Animism, Voodoo and spirit worship. In the past two centuries modern Islam has taken a stronghold here. The people hold fast to the pillars of Islam. They pray five times a day, they fast during Ramadan, They give to the poor (though they are incredibly poor themselves). It seems they so desperately want to please God, but they don't know God because they don't know the truth about who Jesus is. Short-term missionaries Alton and Barbara Lanier have made many trips to Senegal, each time bringing with them a team of other like-minded believers. Their goal is simple, to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with those among the Sereer who have never heard. They have invested themselves in the lives of the people; building real relationships and becoming like family to them. Incredibly, in one village they have even been given permission by the chief's eldest son to teach Christ to the children in the schools. "Perhaps they will be the generation who believes your message," he said, though he himself professes Mohammed and does not believe in Christ. A door to these hearts, hungry for the gospel has been flung wide open for a season. But it is not clear how long this door will remain open.

Fingerprints of the Flood
Daniel Barwell
What truly makes this educational and "experimental" to the film industry is the first of its kind, global time animated map of continental origins that utilizes the entire surface of the planet. This film is an absolute game changer in the geologic field by cartographic excellence. It is intended to enhance "Earth Sciences 101", unveiling the evidence that leaves no possibility to ever return to the use of the Pangea notion (or its dynamic earth predecessors). Discovering the geologic origin for the South Atlantic Anomaly produces a new model of continental origins contrary to the Pangea Model of Plate Tectonic Theory. It not only supersedes the Pangea Model based upon the latest evidence, but also proves the one time global catastrophe known as the great global flood of holy writ. The conclusive evidence of the barrier between Africa and South America, makes any debate simply academic at this point. Over a decade of intense research went into this project that truly adds to the data base of human knowledge. By strictly following the "World Magnetic Anomaly Map" as a guide and confirming the compositions and depths, the base 4K animated map of continental origins took over 3 years to compile.
True and Better
Dan Stevers
United States
The Bible is not a series of disconnected stories; it is a single narrative that points to one person. Based on a talk by Tim Keller.


Ray Comfort
United States
The film begins by showing images of the Holocaust, and stating that Adolf Hitler sanctioned the killing of 11 million people. This is followed by Comfort interviewing people about Hitler; their responses indicate a lack of historical knowledge, although he also finds a neo-Nazi who claims to love Hitler. Comfort proposes a hypothetical situation to his interviewees, asking if they would kill Hitler if they had the opportunity at that time in history. He asks more hypotheticals dealing with what his interviewees might do in other circumstances related to the Holocaust. He then switches his topic to make similar comparisons to abortion within the United States and the right to life. The documentary concludes with Comfort stating that over 50 million abortions have occurred to date; he calls this the "American Holocaust".

The song tells us about everything that drives us to achieve, whatever, our goals and dreams. But what is the "key" that motivates us? Are we self-motivated? Is there a superior force? Well that's left in each person decision... In addition, through the video is shown a series of cards that allude to our thoughts. That is, positive and negative messages, which based on those relays on each of us to take them into account to follow or to give up our dreams and goals.
