Storyline

Sara is a teenager who lives with her family, who are Jehova's Witnesses. The family's devout image is questioned when the parents divorce as a consequence of the father's infidelity. One night at a party Sara meets Teis, an older boy who takes an interest in her. Teis is not a Witness, and their relationship is rejected by her father, but Sara falls in love and begins to doubt her faith. Facing ostracism from her faith and family, Sara must make the toughest choice of her young life. Written by Peter Brandt Nielsen

Riveting, Sad, and Heartbreaking!
7 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, I don't know much about Danish films so I don't recognize the actors and actresses who do a first rate job in performing their roles. The film is about Sara Dahl, a Danish 17 year old Jehovah's Witness. The film begins with the baptism of her and her best friend, Thea. Sara is more dedicated and devout than Thea at times. When Sara meets Teis at a club, their relationship begins slowly to evolve more than a friendship. It's actually realistic that they don't move fast. Jehovah's Witnesses especially the single girls like Sara and Thea don't date at all and especially outside the sect. Teis takes an interest in the religion. When things don't go as planned, Sara makes difficult choices that can ruin her family. This film is based on Tabitha's Story which is probably true. While Sara is played beautifully by the actress as a sympathetic, complicated, young woman who must make serious decisions even without the back up of her family. This film is worth watching even with subtitles.
