Indivisible wrapped production recently. The film tells the true story of an Army chaplain and Iraqi war vet who comes home and is faced with an emotional struggle that threatens both his marriage and family. Director David Evans said that he had originally wanted to do a fictional film about an Army chaplain, but ended up coming across this true story about a man named Chaplain Darren Turner. David Evans said about Darren’s story, “When only half of all marriages survive these days, a true story of a couple’s fight to save their family had to be told.”
A majority of the film was shot in Memphis, Tennessee, but the Iraq scenes were filmed near Santa Monica, California. The film took a total of 32 days, 22 of those took place in Memphis and 10 took place in Santa Monica.
The synopsis of the film is as follows, Darren and Heather Turner are ready to follow their calling: serving God, family, and country. Then the war starts to take a toll on the family and leaves them with deep battle scars. Darren and Heather are now thrown into a battle to save their marriage.
Darren said of that time, “God was at work in my life and in my marriage even as I did everything I could to walk and everyone else. He accomplished a miracle in our family. It’s encouraging to us that it matters to people, that it wasn’t in vain, that there is a purpose even in our heartbreak.”
Sarah Drew, one of the film’s stars and executive producer, said of the movie, “The heart of the film is about marriage. The military is the setting through which we tell a story about what it means to fight hard for the vows you make on that day that you stand before God and your community and you say, “I will love you until the day I die.”
Indivisible is set to be released in 2018.
