As a result of "Sound of Freedom’s" "Pay It Forward" technology used by Angel Studios, the true-life thriller surpassed Disney/Lucasfilm's "Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny," and took the No.1 spot at the box office on Independence Day. 

"Sound of Freedom," tells the true story of one man's journey to combat child sex trafficking. 

The Angel Studios movie is based on the life of Tim Ballard, a former U.S. Department of Homeland Security agent who left his job because he wanted to do more to rescue children from modern-day slavery.

The film delivers a bold message calling for the freedom of millions of children enslaved in human trafficking, declaring that "God's children are not for sale." 

Directed by Alejandro Monteverde, "Sound of Freedom" stars Jim Caviezel ("Passion of The Christ"), Oscar winner Mira Sorvino ("The Final Cut"), Bill Camp ("12 Years a Slave") and José Zúñiga ("Twilight"). Along with acting in the film, Eduardo Verástegui ("Unplanned") is the film's producer.

The film received an A+ CinemaScore, an 85% critics score and a 99% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.
