Thy Kingdom Come

Uncertain what to say, the priest who has come to visit clasps the grieving mother’s hands. When she closes her eyes, she sees her young son settling the baby into the bathtub, as the water is running. And then the water is everywhere….
A cancer patient grown mad at God; a Ku Klux Klansman seeking redemption; an elderly woman who was never not in love; an inmate who’s been waiting weeks in his cell for a letter; the mother blamed for her baby’s death. Unscripted, shaped from a dozen life stories, both documentary and fiction, Thy Kingdom Come reveals life in a small mid-America town as alternately precious and harsh, wanting and hopeful.
