A modern family loses sight of what matters when they grow too dependent on technology in this timely tale of electronic addiction. When a mysterious glitch unplugs all the conveniences of modern communication, Mark Van Der Poole and his family are forced to adjust their frantic lives that are bound to gadgets too numerous to count.
Without the Internet or their cell phones, the Van Der Pooles suffer a sudden withdrawal from their devices. Now they're forced to face the best and worst in each other, as they explore old fashioned fun, family, and faith. In the process, they rediscover the real connectedness they hadn't even realized they had lost.

This DVD shows very vividly that God can save anyone! Mark Van Der Poole is a hardened man when it comes to God. When Mark's son Conner becomes involved in working with a Christian man, and is open to his teaching, Mark refers to the "religious mumbo jumbo" and is not pleased. He even tells Conner's friend, Mr. Simmons, that he is "coo coo" and "looney" but still finds himself at church before long along with his wife Laurie, daughter Caitlyn, and son Conner. What happens at the close of the Pastor's sermon is inspiring and remarkable.
This film has its light-hearted and comedic moments as well. We are happy to award this movie our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for all ages. This movie features a nice message too about getting away from technology from time to time to spend more quality time with one's family.
