What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Same Kind of Different as Me is a faith-centric drama based on the true story of a wealthy family who befriends a homeless man. Relying on both faith and her basic goodness, a woman is able to change lives, promote profound friendships, and inspire social change. Forgiveness, redemption, and the joys of unselfishness are key elements of the story. Very sad events are leavened by heartening ones. Expect some violence when an enraged man uses a baseball bat to menace people; he hits windows, furniture, and other inanimate objects. He also sets a fire, but no one is hurt. An alcoholic character behaves badly and often says racial slurs, including the "N" word. Flashbacks show a young African-American boy threatened and ostracized in a Southern town, again the victim of racial slurs.
