Experience the power of faith, courage and friendship when the moving drama Where Hope Grows now available on Digital HD and on Blu-rayTM (plus Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and On Demand today from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

Receiving 5 out of 5 Doves from The Dove Foundation, Where Hope Grows is an uplifting tale of an ex-baseball player who finds salvation when he befriends a grocery-store clerk who has Down syndrome. Theatrically released in 2015, and written and directed by Chris Dowling (Rock Slyde), the heartwarming film features touching performances from a stellar cast including Kristoffer Polaha (TV's "Ringer," TV's "Life Unexpected"), Billy Zabka (The Karate Kid), Brooke Burns (Shallow Hal, TV's "Baywatch"), Kerr Smith (TV's "The Fosters," TV's "Dawson's Creek"), Michael Grant (TV's "The Secret Life of the American Teenager"), Alan Powell (The Song) with Danica McKellar (TV's "The Wonder Years") and introducing David DeSanctis as "Produce."

Calvin Campbell (Polaha), a former pro baseball player with a self-destructive streak, has his faith in God restored when he meets Produce (DeSanctis), an inspirational man with Down syndrome. As their friendship develops, Calvin is reminded that hope grows in the most unlikely places.

The Where Hope Grows home entertainment bonus material includes deleted scenes, plus two featurettes that look at the casting of "Produce" and a discussion of the "R-word," along with an audio commentary from writer/director Chris Dowling and actor David DeSanctis. The Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
