Kobalt Books Entertainment has teamed with Maverick Entertainment Group to launch a unique inspirational movie and novel, “Under the Cherry Tree”.
The movie courageously shows the ups and downs of a marriage when a wife simply loses faith in her husband while he loses faith in God and family at the same time. That bitterness and resentment towards family is a perspective, rarely touched upon in a film and rarely talked about within our families and communities. Unfortunately, it’s what we don’t talk about that ultimately destroys us.
After losing it all, his job, his marriage and the only family that he knows, Kevin, finds himself in a lonely place where love can not be found and silence replaces God’s voice. “Under the Cherry Tree” explores an inspirational aspect within a storyline that has never been told in quite this way.
“This family tree that’s being attacked bears fruit that has lost its taste. Not only is a cherry tree expected to bear cherries, but they are expected to be sweet. It’s not enough to just have family, but the bond of the family must be as strong as a healthy tree that bears fruit in its season,” says Cedric Mixon, writer, director and producer of “Under the Cherry Tree”.
“Close your eyes and imagine a man who has been knocked down by every external circumstance possible. Then imagine his wife who fights ghosts of the past and a brother whose demons are all internal. How can a family survive under these conditions? ‘Under the Cherry Tree’ is a story about just that. It’s about brothers learning to work together and about spouses learning to forgive, in order to be restored,” says Mixon.
“Under the Cherry Tree”, the DVD is available in Walmart stores nationwide as of January 15th, 2013. The two stores in Atlanta are: Walmart, 4725 Ashford Dunwoody Rd., Atlanta, GA 30338 & Walmart, 2427 Gresham Rd Se, Atlanta, GA 30316 and 71 other stores in the surrounding areas of Georgia.
