New faith-based movie First Responders is an inspirational movie that celebrates the vitality of marriage and the bonds of friendship that carry our film's firefighters, police, and EMTs through their challenges. The movie shines a light on these struggles and shares a message of hope and healing. First Responders will be in theaters for a two-night-only event, October 24 and 25, through Fathom Events.
The film tells the story of Karen Williams, a trauma therapist who has witnessed firsthand the special courage that shapes those who work in emergency services. When her husband, a career firefighter, returns from a life-changing blaze, and she discovers that a degree and years of counseling first responders has done little to personally prepare her to help her husband's battle with PTSD. Unable to see a path to save her marriage, she turns to God and celebrates the truth that through Him all things are possible. Perhaps no one knows this better than the brave men and women who provide emergency services: the ones we call "first responders."
"We wanted to create a film that celebrates the bravery of our first responders, but also gives a very honest look at their struggles," shares Writer and Executive Producer Rick Eldridge. "We hope the film can open up conversations that lead to healing, to strengthened marriages, and the community at large supporting our local heroes."
The film is directed by Stephan Schultze (GOD'S COMPASS); written by Rick Eldridge (THE MULLIGAN), Jimmy Hager (WHEN WE LAST SPOKE), and Stephan Schultze; and stars Cameron Arnett (I STILL BELIEVE), Karen Boles (OVERCOMER), and Mari White (PREACHER'S KID). FIRST RESPONDERS was created in a partnership between Reelworks Studios and Liberty University's Cinematic Arts Program.
