Synopsis

As devout Jehovah’s Witnesses, Alex and Luisa and their mother Ivanna are united in The Truth. But when Luisa starts to question the Elders’ advice, she makes a transgression that could expel her from the congregation. Unless Ivanna and Alex can persuade her to return, they must shun her completely.

MUBI's take

The searing feature debut from British filmmaker Daniel Kokotajlo bears the weight of lived experience. A former Jehovah’s Witness, Kokotaljo takes aim at religious dogma with laser-sighted precision, swerving polemical sensationalism for a powerful dramatic indictment of intolerance and oppression.
