It tells the story of Ben Walker (Kevin Sorbo, Hercules), who 15 years ago left the love of his life, Wendy (Kristy Swanson, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and his calling as a preacher for a lucrative business opportunity. Now, with a big promotion and a trophy fiancé, he has no desire for family or faith.
That is, until an angel in the form of a mechanic (John Ratzenberger, Cheers) visits him and shows him what his life would look like had he followed his true calling. Suddenly, he’s married to Wendy, the father of two kids (including Debby Ryan, Suite Life on Deck), and the new pastor of a small church. If he’s going to escape this new “reality,” he must first learn the value of family and faith.
In the tradition of “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “The Family Man,” “What If…” offers a glimpse of the consequences of life’s choices and the joys of pursuing a second chance of redemption.
The movie was produced by Jenkins Entertainment and Pure Flix Entertainment with a limited release.
