Like many people in this world, Bart’s childhood was very tough and full of tragic circumstances. His dad beats him, his mom moves out, and he’s desperately searching for things to hold on to as he grows into an adult. In particular, his love for music, which "was like an anchor in the storm," gave him hope, dreams, and the belief that he wasn’t alone.

Life writes its own path for Bart, even though he wants to reject it at the start. He has an amazing voice and a natural talent for singing. However, the road is not straight on his journey to success, and this film illustrates how we are not in control of our destiny; only God is, and he will time everything perfectly.

Bart has to face his fears and find forgiveness in his heart. God forgives each and every one of us, no matter what we have done in life, but it can be very hard for us to do the same. In order for us to move on, we have to let go and forgive (just like Bart).

"I can only imagine" is an absolutely spellbinding song that lifts the hairs on the back of your neck and really opens up your thoughts towards Heaven. It has sold 2.5 million copies, making it the best-selling Christian single of all time.

This is a superbly cast, heartwarming, and inspirational true story film that is a gripping reminder of how powerful forgiveness can truly be.

Will I stand in Your presence
Or to my knees, will I fall?
Will I sing hallelujah?
Will I be able to speak at all?
