Synopsis by Tony Hayes:
The guilt of our past can sometimes hold us back from pursuing a relationship with God. Don’t Hate Celebrate provides action and real life situations in how to overcome that guilt. Don’t Hate Celebrate is a film of redemption based on the parable from the prodigal son and Christ making a point to the elder brother not to hate on his brother’s return and redemption. Big Slim’s road to redemption is not with ease but God brings him victory; as he finds inspiration in the parable of the prodigal son. God celebrates his coming home in the film “Don’t Hate Celebrate”. He realizes that God desires us to celebrate people when they come to Him, rather than being judgmental and jealous like the elder brother in the parable. Don’t hate celebrate what God is doing through others, because he loves you too and has a plan for your life!
