Many in Utah are familiar with the story of Chris Williams, the Salt Lake City man who forgave the drunk driver who caused a 2007 car accident that killed his pregnant wife and two of his children.

What many may not know is how that monumental decision has and continues to bless lives. . . . Williams’ story is about to be told on the big screen. Co-filmmakers Christopher S. Clark and Patrick H. Parker have taken Williams’ life-changing experience and made it into their first full-length feature film, “Just Let Go,” starring Henry Ian Cusick (“Lost”).

“Just Let Go” premieres Monday, Sept. 28, in a unique nationwide event that organizers are calling “A Night of Forgiveness.”

On that night, “Just Let Go” will be available in about 500 movie theaters across the country via Fathom Events’ digital broadcast network. Additionally, a special program will originate from Ogden’s Egyptian Theater, involving Mpho Tutu, the daughter of Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the executive director of the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation, along with musical performances by pastor and Christian recording artist Lincoln Brewster and Ryan Innes (NBC’s “The Voice”).
