A father goes on the run to protect his young son, Alton, and uncover the truth behind the boy’s special powers. What starts as a race from religious extremists and local law enforcement quickly escalates to a nationwide manhunt involving the highest levels of the Federal Government. Ultimately his father risks everything to protect Alton and help fulfill a destiny that could change the world forever. (TMDB)

Was es heißt, ein Vater zu sein ... Michael Shannon erlebt es in dem neuen Film von Jeff Nichols. Der Sohn ist ganz und gar außergewöhnlich, außerirdisch sogar, ein durchdringendes Licht kommt aus seinen Augen. Weshalb er von einer dubiosen Sekte verfolgt wird und von den US-Geheimdiensten. Einen government sci-fi chase film nennt Nichols sein Werk, einen Regierungs-SF-Verfolgungsjagd-Film wie John Carpenters Starman oder Steven Spielbergs E.T., eine unglaublich bewegende Familiengeschichte, überschienen von einem ever-lovin' light.
