Hannah, a widowed Minister and Bible scholar, finds her faith at odds with that of her long estranged gay son, Thomas. She has recently hired an inquisitive young writer, Brandt, to assist with her book about a newly discovered manuscript that appears to be a lost gospel, one that may predate those in the Bible itself. As she notices the chemistry brewing between Brandt and her son, she decides to risk all on an unconventional opportunity for reconciliation that has unexpected consequences for all three of them.

“Thoughtful exploration of faith, grief and loss.”

Tom Wicker (Time Out, The Stage, Telegraph)

“Tightly constructed... Bunin is a writer of wit, subtlety and no small degree of courage... Higgins directs with a sure touch.”
