Contest: Abel’s Field

posted by Nell Minow

Abel’s Field” is the story of high school senior Seth McArdle (Samuel Davis), left motherless by tragedy, abandoned by his father, and under enormous pressure to support his little sisters. At school, he endures the daily bullying of the football team. When he fights back, he’s singled out for punishment, assigned to an after-school work detail under the supervision of a reserved groundskeeper, Abel (Kevin Sorbo). Much to his surprise, Seth discovers that Abel may be the only one who truly understands his struggles. As dark times lure Seth towards desperate measures, the reluctant Abel may be the one person who can point him back towards the light.  I’m delighted to have a copy to give away.  Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with “Abel” in the subject line and tell me something you hope for in the new year.  Don’t forget your address!  (US addresses only.)  I’ll pick a winner on January 30.
