Viewers will immediately be swept into this story and held captive all the way to the end! While the target audience is ages 8-12, youth and adults can glean so much from this animated video. The story of Richard Wurmbrand is one of amazing courage as he chooses to speak up for Christ in war-torn Romania in the 1950s. His life and the lives of his wife and son are in great danger as his decision results in his imprisonment and torture. But God does not forget His own. Following Richard’s release from prison, he and his wife and son came to the United States. His life continues to impact the persecuted church today through the ministry of The Voice of the Martyrs which he founded in 1967. There are 80 minutes of extras including “The Story of the Underground Pastor and His Wife.” Their son offers insight into their lives as no one else could. The viewer has the option of setting it as the English or Spanish version.
