Followed by a Q&A with director Daniel Kokotajlo.

Daniel Kokotajlo’s intelligent, gripping drama is set among a close-knit community of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Oldham. Ivanna (Siobhan Finneran) is a true believer and has raised two teenage daughters to follow her values. Luisa (Sacha Parkinson) is at college and facing bad influences and irresistible temptations. Fears for her younger daughter Alex (Molly Wright) prompt Ivanna to arrange a match with church elder Adam (Robert Emms). Tensions slowly grow in a powerful, strikingly restrained story of the clash between blind faith, family and freedom. 

Specially commissioned programme notes are available here

Authentic, sensitive and subtle but has a sledgehammer narrative punch
