In the wake of church interference in a young woman’s life, beauty and innocence, desire and forgiveness struggle for survival. The Woman. The Son. The Old Man Upstairs. Could there be any holiness in this earthly trinity or is it just another dysfunctional family? A tale as fierce as it is moving.
