Collide Distribution is preparing to launch the home entertainment release for the feature-length drama Heaven.

Created by Bridge & Acorn Entertainment, the film is based on the highly acclaimed book Heaven: The Adventure Begins by author Alan Duprey and adapted to screenplay by Angus Benfield.
“I wanted the story to have a unique view of both Heaven and Earth,” explains Duprey. “There is so much hidden suffering in the world and this film brings comfort and clarity to hearts that are broken by the desperate struggles and decisions they have made in the past, the present, and the future.”
Heaven tells the story of Jonathan Stone, a middle-aged paramedic who struggles to find meaning in the midst of his everyday life until he wakes up one day in Heaven and discovers that his life had more meaning than he could have ever imagined. Set between Heaven and Earth, Heaven follows the life and afterlife of Jonathan and the lives of those around him, from his past, present, and future.
Heaven stars Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight, The Expendables), Angus Benfield (NCIS: Los Angeles), Michelle Fouzounmayeh (A Champsion Heart), Michael Maclane (The Young and the Restless), Tavarus Weems (Alien Rising), Gina Simms (The Encounter), and Juliet Rusche (Made for Love). Benfield also brings the story to life in the role of the director.
“The story is very dreamlike, but we wanted it to also have a very relatable, real-world feel,” shares Benfield. “Ultimately this is a story of hope. That no matter what the circumstance, no matter how dark your life may feel at any given moment, your life matters. God made each of our lives to impact others in incredible ways we can’t imagine.”
