training offer within the urban center. After relocating, he accepts an offer to train the
community choir and performs his duties with passion, just like he did before relocating to the
rural community. Daniel readily forgives the rural community of his childhood experience, but
his refusal to forgive the urban community shows the differences between the cultures of the two
environments. The mutual bond between the community and its residents is stronger than the
typical bond created as a result of a job offer, as shown by Daniel’s decision to take the rural job
offer despite his previous job offer in the urban center (Lamont and Hall).
The distinction between the rural and urban communities is depicted by the population of
each community members, although the strongest aspect of communal impact on a long-term
basis is not heavily dependent on the qualities of the population. The film as it is in Heaven
shows the effect of the urban environment as Daniel is forced to relocate without considering the
challenges of settling into a new environment. Daniel joins the rural choir and proceeds with his
music development with equal impact on the rural environment compared to urban communities.
While in the choir, he makes new friends within the community and finds love. This indicates the
closeness of people in rural areas (Lamont and Hall).
The rural environment is capable of sustaining a community member while the urban is
capable of producing an impact of greater achievement due to high population. The rural
environment sustained Daniel and supported him while settling in the new community while the
urban environment helped him develop his musical career and achievements. High population
and high expectations of the urban environment poses challenges to those in charge, and
increases chances of misunderstanding since the community tries to accommodate all its
members. In a rural environment, due to lower population, the community respects and observes
the best interests of individuals assigned a given task thus avoiding any obstructions that may
