User Reviews

An excellent mini series dealing with the issues of faith and religious fundamentalism.
28 February 1999 | by cath-14See all my reviews

An excellent series dealing with religious faith and fundamentalism. There are three inter-woven storylines dealing with people caught up in the issues of religious intolerance, politics in religion and the tragedies that religion can bring about. Wonderful acting and a thought provoking storyline.
