What if you were a healthy female in your 20's one day, and then within 24 hours had to have a double mastectomy to stop aggressive breast cancer?

That is the premise of the movie 1 Message. The movie explores the depths of despair and lost hope one woman faces. To say the woman throws herself a massive pity party, is to understate what the character goes through.

The movie is about finding hope, even in the smallest act of getting a message from somebody who cares about you. Sometimes someone can find a mysterious ray of hope in the most unlikely of places. We learn that true beauty is what's on the inside, not the outside.

A smaller part of the film deals with the subject of forgiveness. If someone has wronged you, sometimes you must forgive for yourself, not just for them, to get over the hurt and anger. In other words, forgiveness is what you do for yourself, not for the person that wronged you. However, with that said, we must forgive others, just as Christ forgave us (Colossians 3:13).
