Cinedigm announced today that A Father's Legacy will release July 16 On Demand & Digital. A Father's Legacy is an inspiring story that touches on family, redemption, and loyalty as it follows a young man (Jason Mac) on the run after an armed robbery. Hiding from the law, he sets out to find the father he never knew. Venturing further away from the city streets, he finds himself at the secluded home of a stranger (Tobin Bell). As the days pass and the secrets about their past are revealed, they learn that they might not have been looking for each other...but they may have been brought together for a reason.
Movieguide said, "A FATHER'S LEGACY is a heartfelt, compelling, well-acted drama about forgiveness, redemption and second chances."
"This film was born out of one of the most difficult times in my life," says Writer/Director Jason Mac. "My father was my protector; a guardian I knew would always be there, and then one day he wasn't. The loss forced me to look inside and really explore what it was to be a father. Too many young men have no male role model growing up, so I hope that becomes a lesson and learning from this film."
A Father's Legacy is a fictionalized story but heavy with the emotions of Mac's own experiences. The film stars acting legend Tobin Bell (SAW Franchise, The Firm), Jason Mac (The Vampire Diaries, Criminal Minds), Rebeca Robles (Reprisal, Ambitions) and Gregory Alan Williams (Remember the Titans). A Father's Legacy was produced by Mac and John Lerchen, under his Forever Safe Productions banner. A Father's Legacy (previously titled The Old Man & The Pond) was the Official Selection of the Heartland International Film Festival and the Official Selection of the Soho International Film Festival.
