The Secret Handshake is a heartwarming family comedy of men and boys learning together what it takes to be a man. Kevin Sorbo and Amy Grant lead an ensemble cast on a journey from Suburbia to the Deep Dark Woods, and back again with adventure, laughter and maybe even a tear or two.
The film was shot on location in Tennessee, taking advantage of the state's beautiful back roads, mountains and rivers.
The idea for this film came when writer/producer/director Howie Klausner was asked by a friend to write a letter to his son who was turning 13, offering advice on what it takes to be a man. As fathers to five daughters between them, Klausner and producer Tim Brown saw the potential for confusion...and comedy.
