Eighteen year-old Alex, her elder sister Luisa and their mother Ivanna live as part of a close-knit community of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Manchester. After Luisa commits an act of transgression, the Elders threaten to expel her from the congregation, and her mother and sister must either persuade her to return, or shun her completely. Written and directed by a former Jehovah’s Witness, Apostasy provides a remarkably authentic insight into the complex nature of faith, family and duty.
