The Other Side of Heaven 2
The Other Side of Heaven 2: Fire of Faith is a 2019 adventure biography drama film directed by Mitch Davis. It is the sequel to the 2001 film The Other Side of Heaven. Heaven 2 continues the story of John H. Groberg, who returns to the islands of Tonga, where he served as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ten years prior. This time he is a mission president for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He brings his family along: his wife, Jean Groberg (née Sabin), and their five daughters.
In the 1960s, ten years after the original Heaven film, John Groberg (Gorham) is tasked with being president of the Tonga–Fiji mission for the LDS Church. He returns to the islands where he served as a young missionary, this time with his wife, Jean Groberg (Medlock), and their five daughters. While the Grobergs begin their new life in Tonga, native Tongan minister Sione (Baker) learns that his son, Toutai (Tarrant), plans to be baptized into the LDS Church and serve as a missionary himself. Sione is infuriated, and becomes determined to curb the missionaries' success on the island. He buries Toutai neck-deep in sand on a beach while a storm out at sea threatens his life. His brother attempts to dig him out, but is struck by lightning in the process. Toutai miraculously survives.
