A man and the vision that was given to him
That would make him POOR NO MORE
Synopsis: The man had a plan to purchase a Deteriorated retail shopping mall. For years the mall was going down, people weren't coming to shop, and one day owners of the mall closed the doors. Donald Jackson was given a vision to convert the mall into a motion picture, entertainment mixed use with retail shopping, but not the means to make it happen. Jackson believed that God had given him the vision as a test to prove his faith and without means to acquire property to fulfill this vision, faith was all he had. Faith being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we see" No matter what.
Before this journey, Jackson was very successful. He had acquired financial success enabling him to enjoy the finer things in life. New automobiles, investments in houses, plus cash to be able to take a vacation once a year and take care of his children. It may not seem so bad, except when it's taken all away from you. Now you have nothing. You’re not the same person. You wonder where your next meal is going to come from, and you have to believe in something.
This documentary, drama with some off beat humor is told to have you think about what you have and what you’re going to do with it. The system is broken. Every day lives are destroyed by circumstances and beginning to be out of people's reach. Injustice is rampant but who will stand up? Who will fight back? People are losing hope in our government, in our churches, and in our educational school system. It’s not like it used to be. All around the world people are standing up for a lot of reasons. In this small town North of Minneapolis is a community that seems to let the City and Big Business dictate what’s good for the community. Donald Jackson had another idea, but no one would listen. Not even our elected politicians. Jackson looked to the community that he was acquitted with to band together to accomplish a major development. No one wanted to help, there were no takers. No matter the task Jackson had to stay on the journey. He is currently producing 2 Television Shows. They will be revealed in this exciting documentary how Donald Jackson became “POOR NO MORE BECAUSE OF BROOKDALE”.
Both friends and strangers struggle with these questions on a day-to-day basis though none is greater exemplified than the plight of Donald Jackson trying to survive the daily grind. Finding one too many disappointments. Through trials and tribulations Donald reaches for a purpose in his life before it is too late? “Poor No More Because of Brookdale” is a story of human behavior and how normal people either rise or fall to the occasion. Can these people be saved? Do they want to be saved? Whose fault is it anyway if they are, or not to be saved?
In the story are examples of people impacting someone else’s life and it takes you on a different journey. Who are the victims of this journey when people become tired and won’t take no more. “Poor No More Because Of Brookdale”, “It’s not your fault” or maybe it is.
