A modern retelling of the Prodigal Son: Jacob ventures out into the world, only to learn that the world is harsher than he thought.

A Long Way Off

Recommended Age: 15+

Very strong Christian, biblical worldview in a modern re-telling of the biblical parable of the Prodigal son told by Jesus in Luke 15:11-32, and (as in the original) hero indulges in pagan hedonism until he comes to his senses; one "h" word; light threat of violence when gangster owed money grabs another man and threatens him with only 24 hours to get the money; no sex scenes but man with champagne enters woman’s apartment, man sits in booth with two or three women in bar/nightclub, and woman has gangster boyfriend in her apartment; upper male nudity in one scene; plenty of drinking (including at a party) and man seems a bit tipsy in one scene; brief smoking but no drugs; and, jealousy but rebuked, laziness but rebuked.
