Oldham, Great Manchester. As devout Jehovah’s Witnesses, sisters Alex and Luisa and their mother, Ivanna, are united in The Truth. Alex looks up to her confident older sister, while striving to follow in Ivanna’s footsteps as a “good Witness”; she always puts her love for Jehovah before and does everything He supposedly requires of her: attending all services at the Temple, preaching, submitting to the tightened yet passionless courtship of Steven, an old-before-his-time church Elder. She is willing to any sacrifice. Luisa, on the other hand, is beginning to have doubts, asserting her independence in deliberate ways, which is unacceptable for the congregation and Ivanna, who must shun her completely. But their path is crossed with another heartbreaking test of faith.
