Down from the Mountaintop is the newest release in Family Theater Productions' DVD series for teens and their families. This contemporary story relates to scripture and the Fouth Luminous Mystery of the Rosary, The Transfiguration.
Down from the Mountaintop is the story of shy, music-loving Adam McGlinn, the new kid in town, who gets talked into going on a youth group retreat. “Go, meet people,” his parents say. He reluctantly agrees and arrives at the mountain retreat center, guitar in hand. He is welcomed enthusiastically by the teens in the music group. Adam not only grows close to this new community of friends but feels a spiritual connection to God and the Church.
Then the weekend retreat ends. In his new fervor, Adam resolves to start a Christian band at his public high school, only to discover that his new “friends” have returned to their routines, his parents don’t get it and his sister Emily makes fun of him. Discouraged, Adam wonders if his encounter with God was just an illusion.
This powerful drama relates to scripture and the fourth Luminous Mystery of the Rosary, The Transfiguration, when Christ’s disciples wished that they too could stay on the mountaintop.
The beautiful and inspirational song featured in the film, “Author of my Life” was written by Paulina Cerrilla especially for this production. Paulina also plays the character of Cristina in the film.
