THIS IS OUR TIME is about five close friends, who are tightly knit together because of their Christian faith, but are faced with a terrible tragedy.
After graduating from college, the five friends all have big plans for their future. Luke and Alé get married and decide to move to India to help orphans. Ryder and Catherine each get their dream jobs. However, Ethan, after getting rejected by all the grad schools where he applied, is stuck working at his dad’s restaurant. He always believed that God had big things in store for him, but his life doesn’t seem to be moving.
Ethan’s sister Alé, played by Erin Bethea from FIREPROOF, encourages him not to give up on God’s calling in his life. Even their dad, however, is clearly more proud of his daughters achievements than Ethan’s.
The dynamics of the little group is tested once Luke and Alé leave the USA to follow their calling. Ryder starts a relationship with one of his co-workers. This bothers Catherine, who likes Ryder.
Catherine faces her own dilemma when she discovers her boss committing fraud. Meanwhile, Ethan tries to discover his purpose in life so he can live up to his potential. Unknown to the group is a tragedy that will shake up their lives forever. Will they have the faith and courage to get through it?
