Have you ever wished that films would combine the moral quality of traditional Christianity with the production quality of Pixar and Disney? If so, then your wish has come true! This spectacular film is now available, and your family can watch it in the link provided below. 

In this tremendous film, the main characters not only fight dragons — they also pray to the Lord for deliverance from the great trials and troubles that come their way. The strength and beauty of Christian marriage is front and center throughout the story. Even while including many fantastic action scenes, the movie still reminds the viewer that faith, love, and fidelity are the most powerful weapons of all:  

This beautiful film came to Russian theaters in 2017. And now in 2020, Russian Faith has released this wonderful movie with English subtitles! This film is not historical — many things were added to the story, making it into a dramatic motion picture. Some parts of the story were inspired by the lives of Peter & Fevronia, but this particular movie is only loosely based on the historical accounts. Nevertheless, it is an uplifting film that does justice to the traditional values of patience, honesty, love, marriage, bravery, mercy, prayer, and a deep faith in Christ.
