Jessica's extraordinarily strong will and heart enables her to rebel against her fanatical, cult-like upbringing. From seven to seventeen Jess is brainwashed to be one of the 'saved', to devote her life to Jesus, to follow the discriminatory teachings of Pastor Finch and his understanding of Revelations. As her warm personality dictates she succeeds in fitting into this regime and spreads the word of Jesus in a fairly content manner. But when her friendship with Melanie develops into something a little more 'unnatural' she easily realizes the error of the Pastors teachings. The girls are subjected to terrible treatment to convince them to repent.Written by
This film hit me hard. I watched it by coincidence, but couldn't keep myself away. It's disturbing, true, but it tackles a topic lots of people need to think about. It's a very difficult topic to discuss in a film like this, and I think it has been done very well. Everyone should see this film!
