LYNCHBURG, VA (ANS – August 2017) -- EXTRAORDINARY is the first student-driven film to have a national theatrical release. Sixty Liberty University film students based at Lynchburg, Virginia, worked on the project, alongside professional filmmakers, actors and production keys.
The result is a high-quality film made – in part – by the next generation of filmmakers.
An impressive cast headlines EXTRAORDINARY, including Leland Klassen (Alter Egos), Shari Rigby (October Baby), Karen Abercrombie (War Room), and Kirk Cameron (Fireproof).
About the story:
The seemingly endless road beckons. Well beyond exhausted, his body trudges onward -- quitting is never an option. Aiming toward the finish line of another transcontinental race, he senses his prize this time is much greater than any medal or honor. Every step leads him closer to home.
Based on a true marriage journey, EXTRAORDINARY tells the amazing story of ultra-marathon runner and college professor David Horton, his wife, Nancy, and their attempt to finish their marriage race well.
Although proud of his incredible athletic accomplishments and the impact he has on his students, David’s family continuously pays a high price for his years of competitive running. Following his open-heart surgery and irreparable damage to his knees, Nancy is ready for Dave to hang up his racing shoes for good and focus his boundless energy on their family. Instead, feeling called by God to “inspire people one last time,” Dave sets off for a 2,900-mile race across America.
