This is Richard Dutcher's second LDS theatrical film, after his breakthrough God's Army. These films' success paved the way for the other LDS-themed productions that have followed. It did not, however, recoup its cost in its initial release, and Dutcher entered a four-year dry spelll after its release, attempting to create his film on Joseph Smith and eventually making States of Grace.
