Christians are not above fear, guilt, and grief. Whenever we are faced with fear and grief, we can sometimes take matters into our own hands and use man's knowledge and wisdom to control things. When this occurs, we can find ourselves leaning on our own understanding and not on faith.
Tom Nottingham allows the fear of losing his business to become his priority, resulting in the neglect of his family. Following a dreadful accident where his family dies, he is weighed down by grief and guilt until it consumes his energy. He goes deep into his grief, slips into a self-made cocoon of depression, loses touch with his emotions, and is no longer stirred by anything. He becomes like a dead man walking.
When Robert Montgomery, a Good Samaritan, comes into the situation, it is a challenge for him to breach Tom's cocoon. Through some divinely appointed circumstances, Robert receives wisdom regarding how to break through to Tom.
Along with a cast of characters all working to help Tom, God is enabled to do an incredible work of healing as he did with King Nebuchadnezzar!
