Words By Heart

105 Mins   |   Family

At the turn of the century, Lena Sills, a 12-year-old African-American girl, moves with her family to an all-white community in Missouri. Although the Sills are intelligent, sensitive, and hard working, they are rejected, victims of prejudice and fear. Proud of Lena's quick mind and love for books, her father each day shares with her his love along with quiet words of faith, compassion and forgiveness, the principles that lie deep within his soul. It is these thoughtful, heartfelt words that will come to Lena when tragedy strikes, and give her the strength to go forward with courage.
