A Romantic drama based on the conflict between science and religion.
It’s the best and worst of church, religion and faith. The best and worst of science. It’s about indoctrination, dogma and manipulation, even outright lies.
It’s family expectations, mis-communication and betrayal. It’s love and hate. A line drawn through a Kent village, dividing families and friends…
After losing her job and having her ambitions cruelly dashed, Catriona Turner has no choice but to join her parents in a move to an unfamiliar country village.
Joining a charismatic local church she finds purpose and meaning in a renewed Christianity.
When news of the proposed construction of a science park reaches the village, Catriona finds herself in direct confrontation with the scientist behind the proposal, but discovers that her church does not have a monopoly on the moral high ground, or the truth…
