The trailer to the family film Carol of the Bells shows a wonderful message about acceptance and shows that anyone, and I do mean, anyone can be an actor if they put their heart into it.


A young man with a troubled past seeks out his biological mother. His world is turned upside down upon discovering that she is developmentally disabled. Unable to work through this new discovery on his own, the man’s wife takes matters into her own hands forcing her husband to face the truth and heal the past.

RJ Mitte, Lee Purcell, Andrea F. Friedman, Yuly Mireles, Donna Mills, and Donna Pescow star in this film, which was directed by former actor turned filmmaker and teacher Joey Travolta. For Travolta, this film brings a sense of importance as 70 percent of the crew have developmental disabilities and it is clear that this is one film that must be seen to show that anyone can make it when they try hard.

High Octane Pictures is releasing the film on DVD and Digital on March 3.
