‘From Chains to Freedom’ features ex-convicts who’ve come through the Washington State prison system. Many of them were at McNeil Island Prison, and the film features footage from there, as well as interviews on site.
Other than prison, the common thread in this film is the message that true freedom is found in Jesus, not in a change of circumstances. If you have doubts about God’s power to change a life, this film quietly confirms faith and presents a beautiful, joyful gospel message through lives changed. Huge thanks to Howard Penney of HP Ministries who brought these wonderful people together to help illustrate the power of personal testimonies.
