Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull) creates some of his best directorial work, complimented by stellar performances from Ethan Hawke and Amanda Seyfried. A film that encapsulates the world of today and considers the moral, political and religious implications of this very specific moment in history.

Rev. Toller (Hawke), a pastor of a small church with a dwindling congregation, grapples with mounting despair as he tries to balance his faith and his doubts. When a young pregnant woman (Seyfried) asks for help with her radical environmental activist husband, Toller finds himself plunged into a downward spiral that will test the depths of his own beliefs, with astounding consequences.
