One Fall- -
Set in the rustic Midwestern town of One Fall, the film tells the story of a man, James (Marcus Dean Fuller), who miraculously survived a horrific fall from a spectacular 200 foot-high cliff and was never heard from again. However, three years after vanishing James chooses to return to his hometown of One Fall -- but he returns a changed man. For an incomprehensible reason James has developed supernatural healing abilities since the fall. He must decide whether to use his abilities to help the ones he once turned his back on, or to continue running from his mysterious past.
One Fall is an interesting play on words. One Fall is the name of the town in which the event took place. One Fall portrays a story about a man who gains supernatural healing powers after a 200-foot fall. He begins using his powers to help those who are afflicted in hospitals. The cliff that the man falls from is a local attraction. This movie is about more than just supernatural healing powers. This Parental Guide to the movies encourages everyone to see this thought provoking movie.
One Fall reaches beyond the miracles of the main character’s healing powers into the very real questions that the characters must face. It is a positive movie about hope, redemption, serving the higher good, and taking a look inside each of use to find that place where true love lives. This is not a movie for the very young, but only because they would not be as interested in it as the older children, teens and adults. It does contain some violence in the form of fist fighting and some brief nudity. Therefore, it is suggested that the PG-13 rating is appropriate for this movie.
This is a deeply moving movie about fate and destiny. Seven Days in Utopia is another movie just recently released, in which a man must use his gift for the healing of relationships, himself, and those around him. The gifts of these two men might be different, but the result is the same. The main character in One Fall leaves town and when he comes back, people say that he has changed. His family and friends push him away because they do not understand him. He must come to grips with his wonderful gift and decide whether to use it for the greater good, or whether to exploit it. The good news in this movie is that he makes the right moral choice, even though it comes with great sacrifice.
This parental movie guide considers the One Fall movie to be a feel-good film, but only for those who are 13 years or older. It asks many hard questions that all of us must face within ourselves. At some point in our lives, we must make a choice of whether to use the talents that we have for the greater good or whether to use them for our own selfish purposes.

The strong morals of the main character in this movie make this a must-see for those of the appropriate age groups.
