    • Synopsis
    • The Minister and his son™
      In 1965 an impoverished young Chilean man, who was raised as a child to work hard and always help others finds himself at a dead end. He had fathered five children, had no education and was laboring away under difficult terrain. With little money his future looked very grim.

      He sold his home, and with a working visa flew to the USA without knowledge of the culture or the English language to the land "where dollars grew on trees". A painful and difficult transition for he had no one to fall back on. New land new people. An alien in a fast moving world.

      His faith was all he had to go on, and it dominated his life. He brought his family to this new land of opportunity and gave them all he had. In the middle part of his life his kids were becoming adults and he began a struggle within himself, realizing that the true happiness he was searching for was that of serving God.
      Meanwhile his middle son Tom began a heavy metal band, singing and performing worldwide, spreading a misunderstood message of everything his father believed in and stood for.
      At the same time as a father of a young man that's on stage with a huge crowd chanting the band’s name, he felt proud but the inverted crosses and all really gave him many sleepless nights.

      In 1985 the band was making its own noise around the world… and not with a positive message. His path looking for God’s will and his son's band being tagged as ‘satanic promoters’ started to crumble… and that had to stop.
