GOD WILLING begins with a letter: Dear Family, I’ve gone off with the missionaries, the bearded ones remember? To serve the Lord. Don’t fill out a missing person’s report. The Lord comes first. Daniel. GOD WILLING is the story of Sandi and Marsha, two moms who join forces to find their daughters in the streets of Seattle. Seven years ago their daughters joined the Jim Roberts Group, a nomadic Christian cult also known as the Garbage Eaters, The Church and The Brethren. They have not seen them since. Their daughters, believing they are on the path to salvation, have abandoned all their worldly possessions including their family: If any man come to me and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren and sisters, yea and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
GOD WILLING is a co-production of About Time Productions and the Independent Television Service (ITVS), in association with Latino Public Broadcasting (LPB) and KNME/New Mexico PBS with funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).
