Director Joshua Overbay deftly leads audiences down a twisting path of passion and devotion, envy and manipulation in this sympathetic portrayal of a modern-day cult leader and his spiritual convictions.
Devoted to a simple life of faith in unforgiving Kentucky backcountry, a small religious sect seeks spiritual awakening as their Prophet (John Lina) nears death and his son, Eamon (Luke Beavers), prepares to step forward as their new leader. But, in his last moments, the Prophet instead names newcomer David (Chris Nelson) as his spiritual successor. Tension mounts when David prophesies about the end of the world. Fighting doubt every step of the way, he must lead the group through the final days. As their lives hang in the balance, each person must decide who to believe — and how much they will sacrifice to be saved.
