Raised in The Truth, as the faith is known to Jehovah’s Witnesses, sisters Alex and Luisa take their religious mission door to door amongst a large Pakistani community in Oldham. But when Luisa starts to question the advice of the Elders, she makes a life-altering transgression that threatens to expel her from the congregation – leaving her sister and devout mother to persuade her to return.

“Written and directed by a former Jehovas’s Witness, this gripping debut depicts a family struggling with a cruel choice: devotion to one another or to their faith.” - BFI London Film Festival
