Rachel and her dad move to a new city and set up a grocery shop. They are escaping their old home, where Rachel’s mother died under violent circumstances and her father’s business failed. As her father works to make a living for them she loses her self into religious fervor. She joins a local church and makes friends with several of the young women attending services. When a trip to a near by lake leaves her seeing signs and desire to rewrite the bible putting women on an equal footing with men things begin to boil.
Slow burn mystery/religious thriller is a creepy affair. Not a film to lay it all out at the start this is a film that gets more intense and creepier as it goes on. It’s not that that its playing coy, rather its just that what happens triggers things. The result is a film that gets more intense as it goes on.
This is a solid little thriller that should be on more people’s radar.
