United States | 80 | Alix Lambert | Joba and Quincy are a privileged and fiercely progressive Brooklyn couple - they buy the right things, donate to the proper foundations, march for every just cause. But when their friend returns from a country pilgrimage challenging their bleeding liberal hearts, Joba and Quincy accept a dangerous invitation that will force them to reckon with the truth behind their goodness. Thrust into a spiritual test of survival, the couple will revisit the very basic foundations of humanity, of society, and of sacrifice in this folk sci-fi twist on the story of Job.
