A new pro-life film “Lifemark,” based on the true story of a young man reuniting with his birth mother, is coming to theaters Sept. 9.

Starring Kirk Cameron and produced by the Kendrick Brothers (“War Room,” “Fireproof”), the movie celebrates the life-giving choice of adoption through the story of Louisiana native David Scotton and his family.

Adopted as an infant, Scotton grows up in a loving home. At age 18 and about to graduate high school, he unexpectedly receives a message from his birth mother, asking to meet him.

With the encouragement of his adoptive parents, the young man embarks on a journey that reveals the truth about his past, including his mother’s brave choice as a scared young teenager. The film is based on a true story, as told in the documentary “I Lived on Parker Avenue,” produced by Louisiana Right to Life.

“We believe LIFEMARK will inspire countless people and churches at this pivotal time to get more involved in supporting life and adoption,” executive producer Stephen Kendrick said.


The film is rated PG-13 for thematic elements. The creators said the rating is based on a scene when a woman makes a decision inside an abortion facility, but “nothing shown or discussed is graphic.”

“As with any movie, we would suggest parents watch the movie for themselves to decide what’s best for their family,” the producers said on the website.

“This movie celebrates everything we are believing in: faith, family, freedom, forgiveness and love,” Kendrick told Focus on the Family in a video on Facebook. “We want to ask if you would please join us in praying that God mightily uses this movie to impact our culture for such a time as this.”
