This surprisingly open and revealing documentary follows two years in the private life of a minister. Marilyn Sewell is successful and beloved in the pulpit, but behind the scenes she is lonely and yearning for change. As she considers leaving the ministry, she realizes she will be leaving her only social network. Yet when she falls in love for the first time, she realizes she does not trust intimacy. A study in contrasts, Marilyn must rely on raw faith as she questions her future, her difficult past, her God, and most importantly... her ability to love. Written by

This is one of the most touching and beautiful movies I've seen in years.
The film is an amazing emotional journey for both the protagonist and the viewer.
The movie follows the protagonist a hugely successful, beloved minister while she contemplates giving up her ministry and confronts other major life changes, facing her deepest fears and personal pain in the process.
Her honesty and raw emotions are a gift to the viewer, reminding us that we are not alone in our struggles, especially those concerning finding love and purpose.
As a good friend said, there's no way you can see this movie without being changed in some way.
Bravo to everyone involved in making this movie and thank you!
