I Still Believe follows Jeremy's life, including his marriage to his first wife, Melissa. Melissa was diagnosed with ovarian cancer just before they were married, but the pair continued on with their relationship through Melissa's illness.
Nevertheless, I Still Believe is more than just a love story. At the core of Jeremy and Melissa's relationship is their belief in God. Their faith that believes that God is good and with them regardless of cancer and death.
K.J. Apa stars with Britt Robertson as Melissa and Gary Sinise and Shania Twain as Camp's father and mother. Lion's Gate and Kingdom Studios, the creators of "I Still Believe," are the same filmmakers who created box office hits "I Can Only Imagine" and "Moms' Night Out."
