Part of Family Theater Productions' Manifest Mysteries Anthology, Carrying On, focuses on the issues of materialism and self-centeredness as it parallels the Carrying of the Cross.
This is the story of Maria, a spoiled teen from Boston who reluctantly travels to her family's homeland in the Philippines to visit her grandmother. The grandmother's money has been missing so Maria's father sends her there to see why. It's quite a culture shock for her but the biggest surprise comes when Maria figures out where the money is going! Maria learns to make sacrifices and experiences what it means to truly be "family" to others.
24 minutes English, Spanish, French and Portuguese tracks on one DVD. Includes a multi-lingual study guide.
Carrying On is part of the Manifest Mysteries: A Rosary Anthology, a DVD series for teens, families and classrooms. Each contemporary drama relates to a Mystery of the Rosary. DVDs are entertaining and spark discussion.
I enjoyed the program. It has a great story line. Almost cried when her grandma passed away.

A Blessing and An Inspiration
When I sat down to watch Carrying On, I truly wasn’t anticipating the impact that such a short film could have on my heart. Not only will this film inspire you and your family to look for opportunities to serve others. It will also deepen and strengthen your love for praying the Rosary. I highly recommend the film and cant wait to watch the other movies in this series.
