One Fall, a powerful story about a man (Marcus Dean Fuller) who is both blessed and cursed with an unusual power, is set in the rustic Midwestern town of One Fall. The film tells the story of a man who miraculously survived a terrible fall from a spectacular 200 foot-high precipice that is the area's major attraction. After recovering, he abruptly abandoned friends and family and disappeared without explanation. The secret he couldn't share with them was that, while recovering, he had suddenly developed the power to heal others. Tired of running away, he returns home after a long absence and decides to use his gift - but not altruistically. If people pay him, he will cure them. Though he appears to be doing the right thing, he is doing it for all the wrong reasons, and risks driving away anyone who ever loved or trusted him. As his moral crisis peaks, he must figure out why he survived his fall, and what he is really meant to do with his life. -- (C) Paladin … More

Critic Reviews for One Fall
Starts out with an intriguing premise but grows muddier as it grows more mystical.
Ends up reducing its hero's struggle (and bad attitude) to a single past trauma and its resultant daddy issues.
The cast is engaging, and there are a few light-chuckle moments, but the script needed another rewrite, and the film itself needed to be guided by a thornier sensibility than Fuller's.
Despite its grander ambitions, the film ultimately feels minor and superficial.
Too much goodness and light and not enough anti-hero doom "One Fall."
So poorly acted and ineptly written and directed that it wouldn't pass muster as the pilot for a particularly asinine soap on the WB station.
Writer/director/actor Marcus Dean Fuller would have been better served having some collaborators on this metaphysical fable.
This portrait of a miracle worker needed some real miracle workers to make it anything but the unpalatable, whimsical self-indulgence that it is.
