I feel that this movie was very meaningful and takes a lot of time to fully understand it. The main character, Jason Stevens, persevered through to the end and along the way learned how to be a better person. He showed honesty when he told Emily he had no friends and was in need of one. He also showed sanctity of life when he tried his best to run away from the kidnappers and succeeded. It shows that he wouldn't just throw away his life like that and do his best to stay alive. To show his value of work he did his best from the start to the end to show that he can start and finish something by himself; he drove all the posts in the ground as neatly as he could making sure they were inline, straight, equally spaced apart.

He had to work for what he wanted instead of just having it handed to him. He also encountered many problems in his gift like losing everything he had. Making friends was also a very important part of his gift because without friends he wouldn't have motivation to do something. He learnt that giving felt just as good as receiving and that the world does not revolve around him. Gratitude was very important because it shows that you are truly grateful for something someone has done for you or given to you so they know that you will remember it. Family was a main part because family raises you to become who you are and that they also support you in what you are doing if it's right to them. Learning taught him...
