"To Life is a beautifully crafted, powerfully uplifting new film that will inspire its viewers at a soul-deep level. What a splendid and welcome piece of work! With so much corruption, cynicism, and conflict dominating the news, it's wonderfully refreshing to be reminded that goodness, decency, and love can still work miracles in our hurting world."

Michael Medved, nationally syndicated talk radio host
