PASTOR. SAINT. BACKSLIDER
LONGLINE: Lissa, a rising star of an evangelical church is involved in car accident and pronounced brain dead. Her devoted husband and their church raise her through a ‘laying on of hands’ and the awakening is claimed as a miracle. But Lissa didn’t meet God on the other side, so either she wasn’t dead and there was no miracle, or there’s no God.

Set in the distinctive world of a modern charismatic church Truesong is a drama that celebrates the courage it takes to question your chosen community. As our young pastor wakes and sees her life from a new perspective, her journey from certainty to doubt creates a compelling narrative that highlights the paradox of religion as a place of both nurture and submission.
By choosing a contemporary and growing religious movement, one of stadium rock, conference centres, malls and suburbs, Truesong challenges mainstream culture and its resistance to critical thinking, asking the question: is faith a luxury we can’t afford?
