"An overwhelming number of people came up to me after viewing the film and thanked me for sharing my testimony, and let me know that the message of the film -- to make your faith, family and community the top priorities in your life , which is the same lessons that God taught me that day -- really spoke to them and made them reconsider how they were living their lives".
The Way Home is the true story of Randy and Christal Simpkins who lose their two year old son Joe, while they are busy packing for a much needed family vacation and are overwhelmed with last minute preparations. Christal asks her husband to load their son into his car seat while she runs into the house to finish packing. Randy gets distracted and when he turns his back - Joe mysteriously vanishes. Every parent's nightmare becomes reality for this couple whose marriage is already strained from Randy's demanding work schedule.
Randy and Christal Simpkins hope that their testimony will impact every parent and family who see their story. This film is packed with emotional drama and suspense! I won't tell you how it ends, but if you are looking for a clean family movie - I think you'll enjoy this one. Dean Cain, best known for his role in "Lois and Clark", plays Randy Simpkins.
This movie was made in Carroll County, Georgia - the actual location where two year old Joe Simpkins went missing. The same areas that you see being searched in the movie are the actual locations that the rescue teams walked during the search and rescue proceedings.
