Two powerful stories that challenge our rock-hard beliefs in revenge, retribution and forgiveness.
70 x 7 derives its title from scripture: "Peter asked Jesus how
man times shall I forgive someone who harms me? Seven times? And Jesus
answered, no Peter, not seven times but seventy x seven."
70 x 7 the Forgiveness Equation thrusts viewers into the turmoil between two sisters, Sue Norton and Maudie Hills, whose family members are murdered by an ex-con. The film goes on to relive the horrific Oklahoma City terrorist attack in which Bud Welch's young daughter was killed. His story reveals a bitter struggle and unorthodox relationship with the father of the convicted killer, Timothy McVeigh.
These are their stories and struggles. Speaking for themselves, these characters share how they coped with unforeseen bereavement, profound feelings of helplessness, rage and revenge, and for some, a move towards reconciliation and forgiveness.
