To Verdener
Synopsis: 

Sara and her family are proud Jehovah’s Witnesses. In the local community they go from door to door and preach about Judgment Day and eternal salvation for Jehovah’s chosen. But when Sara falls in love with Teis, she is confronted with the most difficult choice of her life. Teis is not a Witness, but their love grows through stolen, secret meetings. Sara is torn between conscience, faith and passion, forced to make a choice between her lover and her family, who are worlds apart.
