Trivia

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 »

What is life like for a Jehovah Witness?
21 July 2018 | by connietownleySee all my reviews

This is a realistic portrayal of the insulated life of a Jehovah Witness and the control they live under. The pain of isolation from family and community when one no longer wishes to be known as one of them. This is the reality for the thousands of Witnesses who have left. An eye opener for anyone who is curious about knowing more about Jehovah's Witnesses. The person you see at the cart or knocking at your door carries a heavy burden.
