About His Only Son

His Only Son is making history as the first-ever crowdfunded film to have a nationwide theatrical release

In partnership with Angel Studios, the film’s crowdfunding campaign raised $1,235,000 for prints and advertising costs.

His Only Son is the first feature-length film recounting one of the most controversial moments in the Old Testament—when Abraham was commanded by God to sacrifice his son Isaac on the mountain of Moriah. 

While traveling to the place of the sacrifice, alongside Isaac and two servants, Abraham is flooded with vivid memories from the years he and Sarah spent longing for the son they were promised—the son he must now lay upon the altar.
