A Sherwood Pictures production, the COURAGEOUS DVD is distributed by Provident Distribution. COURAGEOUS tells the story of four men, one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, they are confident and focused, standing up to the worst the streets have to offer. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood. When tragedy strikes home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, fears, faith and fathering. Can a new found urgency help these dads draw closer to God…and to their children? Protecting the streets is second nature. Raising their children in a God-honoring way? That’s courageous.
