Harbinger Media Partners has announced that the company will release the Michael Ealy drama Unconditional, on September 21.
Written and directed by Brent McCorkie, and produced by Jason Atkins and J. Wesley Legg, the film is said to be based on the true events surrounding the character Ealy plays, named Joe Bradford.
Unconditional's synopsis reads as follows:
Samantha Crawford's life is a storybook life: she’s happily married, she lives on a ranch where she keeps her beloved horse, and the stories she’s told and illustrated since childhood have become published books. When her husband Billy is killed in a senseless act of violence, Sam loses her faith and her will to live. But a death-defying encounter with two children leads to a reunion with Joe, her oldest friend. Inspired by true events, UNCONDITIONAL stars Michael Ealy (Think Like A Man, Barbershop) and Lynn Collins (John Carter). As Sam watches her friend Joe care for and love the kids in his under-resourced neighborhood, she begins to realize that no matter life’s circumstances, the love of God is always reaching out to us.
The real-life Joe Bradford serves seven at-risk communities in Nashville, TN through his Elijah's Heart ministry.
"My dream is that Unconditional inspires cities to unite in love to rescue one of our most precious commodities: thousands of at-risk and fatherless children torn by poverty and oppression," Bradford said in a press release.
