Mercy Me’s hit song, released in 1999 and believed to be the most-played contemporary Christian song of all time, has connected with hearts across the world, often in the midst of life’s most challenging moments. Amazingly, the song was written in mere minutes by the band’s singer Bart Millard.
However as is often the case, really those lyrics took a lifetime to craft.
The film I Can Only Imagine tells the story of Bart Millard who, although he found faith at a young age, faced major challenges while growing up. He leaned into an active imagination and his love of music as escapes from a troubled home life. As he grew older, Bart turned to football in hopes of somehow connecting with his abusive father. But a career-ending injury—combined with the vision of a teacher who saw unlimited potential—set Bart on a musical pathway.
Chasing a dream while running from broken relationships with his father and Shannon, his childhood sweetheart, Bart hits the road in an old, decrepit tour bus with his new band MercyMe—named after his grandmother’s favorite expression. With the guidance of a grizzled music-industry insider, the band begins a journey none of them could ever have imagined.
Directed by the Erwin Brothers (October Baby, Moms’ Night Out, and Woodlawn), I Can Only Imagine stars J. Michael Finley, Madeline Carroll, Trace Adkins, Priscilla Shirer, with Cloris Leachman and Dennis Quaid.
A gripping reminder of the power of forgiveness, I Can Only Imagine beautifully illustrates that no one is ever too far from God’s love—or from an eternal home in Heaven.
