Worlds Apart

Niels Arden Oplev, Denmark, 2008

113 min.DK/Feature

Sara and her family are proud to belong to Jehova's Witnesses. In the local community they go from door to door and preach on Judgment Day and eternal salvation for Jehova's chosen ones. But when Sara falls in love with Teis, she is confronted with the choice of her life. Teis is not a Witness, but still their love grows through stolen, secret meetings. Sara is torn between her conscience, faith and passion; forced to make a choice between her love and her family that are worlds apart.
