Starring Academy Award® nominee Greg Kinnear (Best Supporting Actor, As Good As It Gets , 1997) as Todd Burpo, the real-life father whose son Colton claims to have visited Heaven during a near death experience.

A unique relationship develops between an eccentric, reclusive novelist (Sean Connery) and a young, amazingly gifted scholar-athlete (Rob Brown). After the novelist discovers that the young athlete is also an excellent writer and secretly takes him on as his protégé, they develop an unlikely friendship. As they learn more about each other, they learn more about themselves, and ultimately, with the help of his new mentor, the basketball star must choose the right path.
Based on a best-selling book of the same title, this movie is thought provoking and asks more questions than it answers. After losing his high-school teaching job, John Woodson (Matthew Settle) reaches a crossroads in his life. Fate seems to steer him toward a trip to Peru, where he becomes involved in the search for the missing ninth scroll to a set of eight ancient manuscripts that are rumored to reveal the future of mankind. Filmed in 2006 it still resonates with the theme of the hero’s inner journey, that we are all on, to discover the treasure within.
