“What If…” Movie Synopsis:
What if… tells the story of Ben Walker (Kevin Sorbo), who fifteen years ago left his college sweetheart Wendy (Kristy Swanson), and his calling to be a preacher, in order to pursue a business opportunity. Now with a high-paying executive gig, a trophy fiance’, and a new Mercedes, he hasn’t considered a family nor felt the need to set foot in a church.
But God has other plans. While on a thrill ride outside the city, his new car mysteriously breaks down, and he’s visited by a tow truck driver named Mike (John Ratzenberger) who claims to be an angel sent to show Ben what his life would look like had he followed his true calling. Suddenly Ben wakes up in the middle of domestic chaos as his “wife” Wendy and daughters (including Disney Channel’s Debby Ryan) are getting ready for church, where Ben is the new pastor.
Before he can get back to his old life, Ben must first embrace this reality and discover the value of faith and family, and perhaps restore his love for those who were heartbroken fifteen years ago: Wendy…and God. In the tradition of “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “The Family Man,” What If… is a story of finding your true purpose in life.

Dallas Jenkins on Filming “What If…”
In this interview with Christian-Movie.com Jenkins talks about filmmaking and lessons he learned while filming “What If…”
“I’ve noticed a new level of enthusiasm from people about the quality of the film compared to previous films, and that’s always nice, but the comments that really stand out are about personal impact. One man pulled me aside and spoke through tears about how the movie touched him because he felt he’d missed his calling years ago, and he realized it wasn’t too late to make a change.”
“…Making this movie has actually changed my life because I’m so much more trusting in God now and working harder to stay out of the way.”
