Unconditional is a dramatic film revolving around a woman who loses her desire to live and her religious faith as well, upon the unexpected death of her husband. However, she regains both love and her reason for living, following a sudden get-together with an old friend. The movie is inspired by an actual story, and is an independent Christian film, released in 2012, Written and directed by Brent McCorkle, it's the initial film put out by Harbinger Media Partners. The movie received a number of positive film reviews, particularly from religious media. However, it's been said that the film is not overly moralistic or religious, and strongly examines positive values, poverty, and racism, which are timeless and universal concerns.

The true story behind the movie is that of Joe Bradford, formerly of rural Tennessee. He and wife Denise had to relocate to low-income housing in Nashville, once he contracted kidney disease. As they moved into their new home, they found they were surrounded by needy and underprivileged youngsters in their neighborhood. Instead of despairing and doing nothing, the couple reached out to the children and began a choir, directed by Joe. Many of the fatherless, and some parent-less kids, became to love this family, particularly "Papa" Joe. The couple went on to found and establish a non-profit organization designed to help these needy children, in 2005, known as Elijah's heart.

While the movie's events are a bit different, the message is the same. At opening, we find Samantha Crawford, a woman living a perfect life as a published writer, on her ranch with her much loved husband and horse. However, when her husband Billy tragically dies, everything goes downhill for Samantha. She feels that she's lost everyone and everything that mattered to her, until she runs into an old and dear friend, Joe, during a life-and-death experience, with two children involved.

Sam then sees that Joe loves and cares for the poor, especially the young, in the poverty-stricken community, where they live. In this way, she gets back her faith in God, and the will to continue on, assisting Joe with his ministry. She again finds love of God and of humanity.
