WITH NOWHERE TO HIDE, EACH NEW DAY BRINGS THE POTENTIAL FOR DANGER

Grace Surpasses story line

Grace Surpasses is a story about perseverance in a country where peace is an ancient relic and hope is a dangerous luxury.

By focusing on the experiences of one child, we get a glimpse into the day to day realities of life in Southern Sudan, where the absence of clean drinking water, public health and a consistent food supply make even the most basic necessities of life a constant struggle.  Grace and her family manage to thrive in the face of adversity until a personal tragedy threatens to destroy Graces hope.

Despite the hardship, Grace and her family manage to thrive in the face adversity – until a personal tragedy threatens to destroy Grace’s hope.

Grace Surpasses was built and filmed not only for film festivals/DVD sales, but also for live performances. The score to our film Grace Surpasses is extremely powerful and greatly compliments the films non-verbal dialogue state. Seeing the film projected with a live band interacting with the story of the film is an experiment we’re glad to take on knowing that this mixed media performance will raise many eyebrows. We’re always looking for new bands to take on Grace Surpasses and adapt the score to their genre. Please see the “Band Inquiry” tab to learn more.
