Kevin Sorbo stars in a faith-based, politically driven action film that’s set for a one-night-only theatrical run.
The film, titled “The Reliant,” is based on a 2017 novel of the same name by author Patrick Johnston, who also wrote the screenplay. Both the film and the book deal heavily with questions of faith in God during a time of crisis, as well as one’s Second Amendment rights.
“After an innocent trip to the store ends in rioting and chaos, father of five, Rick (Kevin Sorbo) rushes home desperate to gather his family and find safety," the film’s official synopsis reads. "His plans are dashed when the very same armed men suddenly appear, led by the ruthless Jack (Brian Bosworth). Caught in the deadly crossfire, the children are forced to seek shelter in the surrounding woods."
The synopsis continues: “Alone and vulnerable, the children's faith and family bonds are pushed to the limit, especially those of the eldest daughter, Sophie (Mollee Gray), who questions the morality of gun ownership but soon learns that in God all things are good, including her family’s Second Amendment right to defend themselves. It is now up to the children to reclaim their home, find their parents and put an end to Jack's rampage.”
