Accuracy of Book Profile

The Book Profile does accurately reflect the book but could be more detailed. The majority of the book takes place in Heaven but the profile focuses on the very first chapter.

Draw of Story

The story has an extremely positive tone. Sarah lives a wonderful life with her husband. She is a Christian and finds peace in her relationship with God. The topic of the rapture from the perspective of someone taken to Heaven has not been seen often. It was refreshing to see.

Possible Drawbacks

The book is overly happy. Sarah leads a happy life on Earth and then goes to Heaven where there is no pain or strife. It is Heaven and everything is amazing there. She basks in God's glory and gets answers to all her questions. Sarah is able to reconnect with her parents and friends. Even when Jesus takes humanity back to Earth to fight the Devil and the Antichrist, it is from Sarah's perspective. Sarah is in awe of the angels who easy destroy the Devils army. It all ends well. There is no conflict in this story. It is an imagining of an event where the ending is victorious.

Use of Special Effects

THE STORY RELIES HEAVILY ON SPECIAL EFFECTS

Primary Hook of Story

The hook is that Sarah is taken to Heaven in the rapture. The audience sees as she begins her eternal life with God. It follows the events of Revelation, in the Bible, which hasn't been portrayed before. It does not have that "end of the world" movie feel. It is about new beginnings.

Fanbase Potential

This is a very niche film. There are a growing amount of faith-based films so this would have an audience. Unlike some of those films, it would reach across all sects of Christianity and Catholicism.

Awards Potential

This could have awards potential because the story has room for artistic expression. The idea of Heaven, visually, could be open for many interpretations. The story ,as is, does not conflict or character development.

Envisioned Budget

LARGE BUDGET

What’s New About the Story

The story is original because it follows Sarah going to Heaven during the Rapture. Previously, we see those who were left behind but not those who go first. Sarah explores Heaven, gains answers and lives pain free until all of humanity returns to Earth. The concept is similar to many sci-fi films about other dimensions but this is rooted in Christianity and builds on many people's upbringings.

Lead Characters

The lead character stands out in her optimism and joy. She starts off as a happy woman, in love with her husband and grateful for what God has given her. It is magnified as she finds herself flying through space, towards Heaven and her many experiences after.

Uniqueness of Story

This is a rare gem because of the religion it is pulling from. It can be difficult to tackle the subject matter because of the complexities of Christianity but it is done in a respectful way. It may not translate to the screen as well.
