Synopsis by Paola Diego

This documentary film offers a glimpse into the history of religion between race and politics as seen through the eyes of a church in Oklahoma, led by Reverend Robin Meyers. This congregation challenges the fundamentalist Christian church and their literal interpretation of the Bible and questions their role in movements that go against the protection of civil rights for women, minorities, and immigrant communities.
