In the early ‘90s, gay teen Jaime is sent to live with her devout Jehovah’s Witness relatives after the death of her father. Jaime makes an unexpected connection with Marike, daughter of a prominent Witness Elder. The two are instantly drawn to each other, and begin a secret, unspoken romance. But when their attraction becomes too obvious to hide, the community moves to separate the two, forcing them each to make a terrible choice between faith and love. Tribeca Film Festival, Directors Guild of Canada Outstanding Directorial Achievement nomination.
“A delicate balance is achieved here between telling the girls’ story, exploring the role which Marike’s religion and culture play in her life, and critiquing aspects of the way she is expected to live” –Eye for Film
“A thoughtful movie that’s unusual for taking both religion and its teenage heroes seriously.” –Critic’s Notebook
