When a grandmother's secret past collides with her granddaughter's secret future and her daughter's angry present, can the love of three generations be enough to accept decades of deceit. With a simple roll of film it begins.
Two women. One white. The other black. Society mandated they be enemies. The gospel of Jesus Christ required they be friends. On the eve of the death of Joseph Smith, his widow, Emma, is on the brink of destruction. In order to stand with her friend in her darkest hour, one woman, Jane Manning, will need to hear the voice of God once more. Can she hear His voice again? And if so, can she find the strength to abide it?Written by

I was really looking forward to a story about Jane and Emma's friendship. What I was NOT expecting was for it to be told against the background of the immediate day after Joseph's death. What a depressing time that was for a *all* the Saints, not just Emma and immediate family and friends. This made the overall tone of the movie rather dark when I was looking for something more uplifting. That being said, it was a good movie and the acting was good. Had I been able to watch it first in the theater or on Netflix, I probably would not have bought it. Since the only way for me to see this movie was to buy it sight unseen, I did. It will probably be a long time before I watch it again.
