About the Movie
Heaven's Rain, starring Brooks Douglass in his film debut, Mike Vogel (The Help) and Taryn Manning (Crazy/ Beautiful), captures one of the most important stories of our time, in which violence is challenged by the resilience and courage of one man's mission to find forgiveness, and to fight for victims' rights.
Douglass, who experienced a horrific tragedy at a young age, went on to become the youngest state senator in Oklahoma history, where he passed a series of groundbreaking victims' rights bills.
The movie is told through the eyes of Douglass, who suffered an unthinkable attack when two strangers entered his family's rural home and claimed the life of his mother and father. Brooks and his sister Leslie were teenagers when a drug-crazed drifter, Glen Ake, and his partner Steven Hatch invaded their home. Brooks opened the door to what he believed to be a man in need. The men pulled out guns, bound the family, repeatedly assaulted Leslie and shot all four family members. Richard and Marilyn, who were Baptist missionaries, died at the scene. Brooks and Leslie, left for dead, recovered from their physical wounds. But their ordeal had just begun.
