Despite a decade of challenging times where the family was at great odds due to Phil's wild behavior, the patriarch eventually surrendered to Christ. His come-to-Jesus moment changed the course of his family's life forever.

Now, all of his children — Willie, Al, Jase, Jep and his daughter, Phyllis (from an extramarital affair) — all serve Jesus and are outspoken Christians.

"It's powerful. It's real. In some ways, it was hard to watch for us. It's hard to go back and highlight the darkest point of your life. I'm sure for my parents, that was the tough part," Willie Robertson said in an interview with CP. 

The family's journey has been in the public eye since their hit series "Duck Dynasty" made waves on A&E, followed by a series of books and podcasts. What the world has seen are the positive outcomes from Phil's surrender to Christ and the impact it's had on his life, children and grandchildren.

However, "The Blind" pulls back the curtain on what took place before Phil surrendered to Christ.

The film is directed by Andrew Hyatt ("Paul, Apostle Of Christ," "Full Of Grace"), and features actors Aron von Andrian ("Dodger"), Amelia Eve ("The Haunting of Bly Manor"), Brielle Robillard ("The Lake") and Matthew Erick White ("Station 19").
