Susan, a science teacher from Manhattan, starts work in a small rural Kansas town that’s been ripped apart by a tornado. When one of her pupils – the damaged, articulate Micah – takes offence at an off-the-cuff remark about how life on earth began, Susan is thrown into an ethical storm about science and faith that leads to her fearing for her safety.
Sharp, thoughtful and mysterious, How the World Began is a powerful story about outsider in a close-knit, devastated community.
