With filming having just wrapped, Giving Films is now preparing for its first major motion picture release this fall: 90 MINUTES IN HEAVEN. Based on the inspiring bestseller that tells Pastor Don Piper’s incredible true story, 90 MINUTES IN HEAVEN stars Hayden Christensen and Kate Bosworth as Don and Eva Piper. Written and directed by Michael Polish, the film also features Michael W. Smith, Fred Thompson, Jason Kennedy, and Dwight Yoakam.
90 MINUTES IN HEAVEN shares the eternal hope Don Piper has preached about at churches since he died more than 25 years ago. What if the end of life is really only the beginning?
When a semi-tractor truck crushed his car, Don Piper was declared dead by the first rescue workers to arrive on the scene. Incredibly, an hour-and-a-half later, another pastor’s prayers helped bring Don back to life. Yet even with his beloved wife Eva now by his side, this miracle was something Don wished had never occurred.
Excruciating pain and emotional turmoil quickly overtook Heaven’s bliss. With the unwavering support of Eva and their three kids, Don must overcome his anger and bitterness as he clings to his faith in God and fights to regain a semblance of his previous life. The Piper family’s incredible story of perseverance and overcoming life—and death’s—challenges will bring hope and encouragement to all who see it.
Giving Films is a different kind of film company … it’s actually a non-profit ministry! All profits from Giving Films’ movies, starting with their first film 90 MINUTES IN HEAVEN, will be donated to charities in the U.S. and around the world.
