DON’T TURN BACK (60:00) NEW!

Every two years millions of teens from around the world come together with the pope for World Youth Day. This video is the true story of what happened to seven of them from the United States during WYD in Rome in 2000, and their story is inspiring to say the least. Challenged to their very core by profound spiritual experiences, these seven do some serious soul-searching. Grappling with fears, friendships, and faith they cling to their only source of hope. Change is hard, going home harder, but after this trip there's no turning back.
