“Undeserved” follows the story of Dawn, a resilient and strong-minded teenager who must find hope in a world that seems hopeless. Just months before completing high school, her mother is brutally murdered, leaving the 18-year-old in the care of her loving Aunt Jamie.
Dawn’s new home life seems comforting and secure … especially compared to the broken home she was raised in. After all, Aunt Jamie and her husband co-pastor a growing church and seem to have a very functional household of love and comfort.
However, things go terribly wrong when Dawn’s uncle makes a pass at her. Running away from hurt and shame, Dawn finds herself on the streets with nowhere to go. Her only “safe” place is in the arms of a manipulative pimp named Basti, who introduces the teenager to drugs and abuse.
Meanwhile, Aunt Jamie is left to deal with the shattering reality that she has been married to a man who has not only been having an affair, but has been making sexual advances toward young girls.
It is time for both Dawn and Aunt Jamie to seek God’s light, healing and transformative power during what seems to be their darkest moments. But how can they become courageous while facing obstacles they feel no person deserves? How can God’s grace restore such damaged family relationships?
Recommended for mature audiences, “Undeserved” takes the viewer through some of life’s harshest realities. It also reminds us that despite how overwhelming circumstances may seem, “all things work together for good” (Romans 8:28).
