Jason and Sally Danville are a young couple living the good life. Former fighter pilot Jason is one of the Air Force’s top free-lance aeronautical engineers, while Sally is a singer on the verge of success with her band, both free of domestic responsibilities.  But when Sally’s best friend dies, willing Sally and Jason custody of her four children – troubled teenager Jordan, Guatemalan soccer player Javier, Ugandan musician Caleb, and kindergartener Soon-Li – the Danvilles are confronted with a life-challenging Change of Plans.

There is no negative content in Change of Plans. Javier is involved in a fistfight and a car accident, but neither incident is shown, only referred to. The movie addresses a theme of importance to everyone; while most people will never be confronted with the necessity of taking in four orphans and providing them with a home, sooner or later in life everyone has to deal with disappointment in the fact that their life has not worked out as planned. At such times, everyone faces a choice: to embrace the change which has come upon them and deal with it positively, or to reject the new opportunity presented for growth. Change of Plans dramatizes this concern, and shows how tremendous awards can come even from hardship and disappointment.

As they have with their previous ventures on Family Movie Night, sponsors Procter & Gamble and Walmart have provided a warm drama program the entire family can enjoy together, one which is free from foul language, sex, foul humor or extreme violence, but which is genuinely sweet and involving. For its quality and support for family-friendly values and entertainment, the Parents Television Council is proud to award Change of Plans  with the PTC Seal of ApprovalTM
