The second production of Avondale Pictures, “Amazed By You,” was also released this summer.

“Amazed By You” is about a “city slicker,” Christian Andrews, who is thrown into a cowboy world filled with five sisters, two bullies, a whole lot of cattle, one grungy dog and a woman who runs it all, and he has only his faith to guide him through it.

In this faith-based Western, 12 men come together to avenge their friend’s death, but their journey may take them to redemption or death. The film stars Chuck Williams, Dean Cain, Daniel Roebuck, Richard Pryor Jr., Jessica Lynch, Timothy Goodwin, Ronnie Rodriguez and Brett Wagner.
