ABOUT THE FILM:

(www.amatteroffaithmovie.com)

A Christian girl goes off to college for her freshman year and begins to be influenced by her popular Biology professor (Harry Anderson, Night Court) who teaches Evolution as the answer to the origins of life.  When her father senses something changing with his daughter, he begins to examine the situation and what he discovers catches him completely off guard.  Now very concerned about her drifting away from her Christian faith, he tries to do something about it!
