Synopsis

A sequel to Unbroken, the film shows how Louie Zamperini overcame his anger and alcoholism thanks to the powerful message of Rev. Billy Graham and the love of his wife.


Movie Message

Unbroken: Path to Redemption picks up where Unbroken ended—as freed P.O.W. and former Olympian Louis Zamperini steps off the plane onto U.S. soil at the end of World War II. While he’s initially used by the government to sell war bonds, his anger at the treatment he received at the hands of the Japanese prison guards drives him to alcohol, threatening to derail any hope of a better life back home. But when he meets Cynthia and marries her, Zamperini finds a lifeline.

While plotting his revenge and reeling from PTSD-influenced nightmares, Zamperini tries several options to fight against his trauma, including returning to his pre-war love—long-distance running—but nothing helps. Cynthia encourages him to attend the tent revival hosted by Rev. Billy Graham in Los Angeles, and he initially refuses. What Zamperini discovers in the words of this renowned preacher changes his life—and the life of those Zamperini would touch—for the next 60-plus years.

If Unbroken highlighted perseverance in the midst of suffering, Unbroken: Path to Redemption challenges the audience to consider how it receives those who have faithfully served to protect American freedom, to look at the real-life examples of suffering brought on by war and post-traumatic stress disorder, to examine the impact of addiction even within a loving relationship, and to consider the eternal ramifications in the here and now of unconditional forgiveness. In fact, Unbroken opened audiences to an epic, untold story of brave humanity, while Unbroken: Path to Redemption boldly shows how God’s hand was on the life of Louis Zamperini all along.
