Description

The state of Idaho takes freedom of religion to extremes with a law that protects the rights of a Christian sect to withhold medical treatment for their children in lieu of prayer and faith healing. The children have no choice in the matter and often succumb to painful and unnecessary deaths. While the sheriff and ex-members advocate changing the law, the church and allied politicians fight to keep it on the books. This gripping drama involves fascinating characters on both sides of the divide, leaving plenty of paradoxes to ponder.
