Serve Daily - - NEWS -

16 Stones, will be re­leased in the­aters in Utah and neigh­bor­ing states open­ing on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 1st. The movie tells the fic­tional story of a young man in the late 1830’s who sees first-hand the de­struc­tion and loss the Lat­ter-day Saints suf­fer after a mob at­tack in Far West, Mis­souri. Hop­ing to save oth­ers from fu­ture per­se­cu­tion, he and two friends set out to pro­duce proof of the truth­ful­ness of The Book of Mor­mon by find­ing an unim­peach­able ar­ti­fact – the 16 Jared­ite stones touched by the fin­ger of the Lord as re­counted in the Book of Ether.

The movie, di­rected by Brian Brough (Nowhere Safe, Scents and Sen­si­bil­ity, Christ­mas An­gel) and writ­ten by Brittany Wis­combe (Christ­mas An­gel, Chang­ing Hearts), shows the ad­ven­tures and chal­lenges the trio faces in their search. Wis­combe com­mented, “With ev­ery set­back comes a bless­ing and a build­ing up of their faith—if the char­ac­ters are will­ing to see it.”

The project be­gan de­vel­op­ment in 2008 and was set in the mod­ern day. Over the years Brough and Wis­combe kept com­ing back to the project. “We kept try­ing to find the right bal­ance of bring­ing in ad­ven­ture but also main­tain­ing re­spect for the sub­ject mat­ter,” Brough said. The story un­der­went sev­eral re­vi­sions un­til Brough sug­gested the 1830s set­ting might fit bet­ter. “The tone of 16 Stones now sup­ports the feel of faith we wanted it to have.”
