Grace Is Gone Synopsis

There was a time when Stanley Phillips dreamed of patriotic service and was destined for a military career. But, that dream was cut short because of his poor eyesight. Now, he's serving customers at a home supply store while his sergeant wife is fighting in Iraq. Equally as awkward at home as he is at work, he's raising Heidi, their 12-year-old daughter and her eight-year-old sister Dawn. Although Stanley is a loving father, the girls miss their mother deeply. While tolerating his job and stumbling through parenting, he is abruptly awakened when tragedy strikes: his wife is killed in Iraq. Ill prepared to deal with her death himself, he is at a complete loss about telling his children. Instead, he and the girls embark on a spontaneous road trip. Grasping to give them their last moments of innocence, Stanley reveals a softer side as they travel to Dawn's chosen destination - Enchanted Gardens Theme Park. The farther they drive the closer they become, yet Stanley knows he must face the inevitable task of changing their lives forever.

Rated for thematic material, brief strong language and teen smoking
