Set in the early 1900s, Mandie and the Secret Tunnel tells the story of a young girl whose life is changed after her father's unexpected death. Left with a self-absorbed sister and a mean mother, Mandie runs away to escape her stepmother's malicious plans to hire her out for work. With the help of Cherokee friends, she finally arrives at her wealthy uncle's mansion, only to learn that his ship was recently lost at sea. Mandie is taken in and soon makes friends with the neighbours. When strangers arrive and claim to be the rightful heirs to her uncle's fortune, Mandie and her friends race through the house's hidden passageways to find the missing will. Compelled by the stories her father told her when she was a child, Mandie discovers the hidden secrets to her past and the key to her future.
Filmed in North Carolina's beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, Mandie and the Secret Tunnel contains a strong Christian world-view with valuable lessons on obedience, acceptance, patience, kindness, and faith. Based on the best-selling children's book series by Lois Gladys Leppard, this is one movie your family will watch again and again.
