This modern-day parable of a family's discovery of spiritual discipline is told with warmth and earnestness. A man experiences a spiritual crisis at the death of his wife--until he discovers a chest in his attic that holds the three secrets of prayer. Jack Garrett's soft tone allows the mystical elements of the story to shine. Further, he deftly captures the various characters: the hard-working father, the patient and spiritual mother, the precocious children. Garrett's vocal flexibility keeps the story engaging when one might be tempted to abandon the production for a more realistic narrative. As the plot focuses on varying aspects of life's surprises, Garrett's tone keeps pace with both the disillusionment and enlightenment the protagonist experiences along the way.
