Plot & Details

In this inspiring drama, Gordon Trout (Martin Landau) is a elderly man who was once a successful businessman but has become despondent since his wife left him. As Gordon gives serious thought to killing himself, he decides to buy a gun, but while at a shopping mall, he offers to give a ride to three teenagers, Cam (Shawn Hatosy), Jodi (Elizabeth Moss), and Crystal (Heather McComb). It turns out the three kids are homeless delinquents and they soon turn a weapon on Gordon and take him hostage. Before long, the foursome find they have more in common than they imagined, and they come to regard each other as family. But a robbery committed by the kids in a moment of anger could have consequences that will put an end to their friendship. The Joyriders was produced by a Christian-themed entertainment concern and features a number of popular contemporary Christian acts on its soundtrack, including DC Talk, Audio Adrenaline, and the Newsboys.
