As the girls discuss in the car that the cross is a pagan symbol. Unlike other Christian organisations, JWs do not accept the cross, but believe Jesus was put on a stake. They also refuse to use the word "church" for similar reasons, hence "kingdom hall" on their buildings. See more »
Do you know how it feels, to think Jehovah the Almighty is punishing you, directly, all the time?
Why - when I'm sorry?

Apostasy. Fictional yet all too real film about the jehovah's witnesses, as based on the memories of the writer / director who had himself been disfellowshipped from the religion. Brought back memories of how close my siblings and I had been brought up as witnesses like my mum's sisters and offspring. Fortunately dad insisted we were brought up Catholic........ and mum didn't fall under the Witnesses' spell, unlike my aunties (who were in the religion for many years before seeing the hypocrisy of it all for themselves). Also brought back memories of how people can be brainwashed by the 'elders' into banishing their family in the name of the 'truth'. A superbly acted and poignant 7 out of ten.
