Respect

The KnoxCAM dramas tell contemporary stories of God’s love, salvation, and provision.  Based on real stories of real people, they offer assurance that God’s amazing grace is at work, even in the most desperately painful and seemingly hopeless circumstances.

Respect (2013-2014) tells the story of James, a young prison inmate, charming con-man, and drug addict who is desperately seeking “respect” and a sense of self-worth.  He admires Leon, an older inmate who is in the business of selling contraband drugs in the prison.  He buys drugs from Leon and hopes to become one of Leon’s inner circle.  But when he is unable to pay up, events escalate until a Christian staff officer intervenes and offers James a lifeline to true respect and purpose as a new man in Christ.
