Ivanna has raised her daughters as Jehovah's Witnesses. While the younger daughter, Alex, submits to her mother's attempts at matchmaking within their religion, Louise seems to stray from the path of righteousness. A fault line forms within the family, and the time approaches when the women must decide between heaven and Earth.
