After his father stormed out of his grandfather’s house and out of his life, young Bobby was raised by his grandparents. Now grown, Detective Robert Whitmore is in for a surprise when he is assigned a new partner – his grandfather, whom he still blames for the loss of his father. Due to a clerical error Grandpa, a retired detective, has been forced out of retirement after twenty years. As the two generations try to solve an increasingly difficult case of the biggest, baddest, most brazen thief the department has ever seen, Whitmore is forced to deal not only with Grandpa, but with his feelings of bitterness and his own standing before God. My Grandpa Detective is a humorous story with a serious message of family and forgiveness.

To truly forgive one must realize their own need for forgiveness

In today’s broken families, many hold on to bitterness because of how they have been wronged. They fail to see how they, themselves, are truly sinful before a holy God. When someone becomes truly humble and repentant before God, He will forgive them their sins and cleanse them from all unrighteousness. When they recognize the magnitude of their own sin and the forgiveness they have received, they can release the heavy load of bitterness they have been holding toward others.

Importance of This Project

Christian films have increasingly had profound impact on people’s lives. As viewers vicariously live the lives of the characters, they discover truths that apply to their own lives.

Comedies are powerful because laughter opens up the heart, brings down the viewer’s guard and you can then hit them with a zinger of truth. Throughout history, especially in recent years, comedies have been used to push ideas that are considered unacceptable or unsavory by making us laugh. We want to use this genre for good rather than evil.
