Discovering the truth is one thing. Sharing it is another. Three-time Academy Award-nominee Kirk Douglas (Spartacus) lends a strong and stirring performance to the touching family drama of The Secret.

Somehow, he has hidden his affliction from everyone, including his son Patrick (Boxleitner). When Mike's 9-year-old grandson begins having trouble in school, he recognizes the problem as his own. Can he sit by and watch the child go through life the way he did? Share The Secret's moving moments and wonderful performances with your whole family.
