An incredible film shedding light on the rarely seen internal workings of the Jehovah's Witnesses. The attention to detail of Daniel, the crew and cast gives you probably the closest idea of what being a Witness is really like that you are ever going to get bar becoming involved with them yourself and finding out about their shunning policies and so much more when you're already emotionally invested. An honest yet delicately handled portrayal of very emotive situations.
