Carrying On, focuses on the issues of materialism and self-centeredness as it parallels the Carrying of the Cross. This is the story of Maria, a spoiled teen from Boston who reluctantly travels to her family's homeland in the Philippines to visit her grandmother. The grandmother's money has been missing so Maria's father sends her there to see why. It's quite a culture shock for her but the biggest surprise comes when Maria figures out where the money is going! Maria learns to make sacrifices and experiences what it means to truly be "family" to others. This half-hour drama, part of our line of family faith-based short films, was filmed in the Philippines.
