Overall its a family friendly drama with a powerful message. Excellent movie to watch! I have search to see if Brian has changed but there isn’t any information since he is in prison for the rest of his life. Since such events Ashley Smith has gone on to write a book Unlikely Angel , marry, recover from her drug use and travels the country and speaks to other on her transformation!
