17 min.DK/DocumentaryChildren's films

Natalie is 12 years old and a Jehovah’s Witness. Her uncle has died, and she misses him a lot. She believes Paradise will be restored on Earth, a new world where the dead will come back to life and people will have eternal life. Everyone who believes in Jehovah will be part of that world, and so Natalie goes door to door to get as many people on board as possible. When everyone has had a chance to believe in Jehovah, the new world will come and her beloved uncle will rise from the grave. It’s a comfort to know that she will see him again.
