The worse this planet becomes, the more people ask that same old question... "If God Really Loves Me...Then Why Do I Suffer?" It's the basis for all kinds of attacks against the God of the Bible and His teachings. It's even used to attack the evidence of His existance and the legitimacy of the Christian faith. The response typically given to "Do You Believe in God?," is almost always the same. If there is a God and he loves me then he wouldn't do that, he wouldn't cause this, he wouldn't allow this to happen, and on it goes. This film aims to answer those questions and counteract that kind of thinking. - Is there a purpose in my suffering? - Is God truly Sovereign? - Is there a purpose in all things, even my death or someone elses? - Why do these things happen to me!?

With help from his grandpa and best friend Maggie, Steven reaches out to his father in any way he can. Despite his grieving and worsening financial problems, David begins seeking an answer to the question haunting him since his wife's death...WHY?
