The Story Behind Discovering Heaven

"We came face to face with death, compounded by our limited understanding of God and the afterlife."
I suffered two sudden tragic family deaths in recent years. To put it lightly, life has never been the same since. While I sought out answers, I gravitated towards both what the Bible had to say combined with reading people's stories of near death experiences. What I found was that a lot of these stories interweave so beautifully together - and help paint a colourful picture of what Heaven is really like.

So many people, under very different circumstances, all at different times, had these experiences and were saying the same thing. Imagine, if Heaven is real, then this is one of the most important stories to tell. That's what motivated me to take time away from commercial work as a filmmaker to produce and direct a feature-length thought provoking documentary on these real life stories.
