The uplifting and inspirational family film includes music/dance, drama and comedy. The story centers on troubled teen Will Hawkins (Quinn) who has a run-in with the law that puts him at an important crossroad: go to juvenile detention or attend a Christian summer camp. Concerned he won’t fit in, he isn’t honest to his peers about who he really is…. but through his time at camp, Will opens his heart to God, discovers love with a camp regular (Bailee Madison), and sense of belonging in the last place he expected to find it. The film features re-imagined versions of some of the most well-known contemporary Christian music, such as a “Place in This World,” “Baby, Baby,” “The Great Adventure” as well as new music.
