Writer/director Daniel Kokotajlo draws on his former life as a Jehovah's Witness for his feature debut.

Apostasy, which won the BFI’s IWC bursary award for best British debut feature, tells the story of a young woman who finds herself cut off from her Jehovah's Witness family when she falls pregnant.

Apostasy is in UK cinemas and on VOD July 27th.

Check out the UK trailer below and let us know your thoughts.

The official synopsis reads:

As devout Jehovah's Witnesses, sisters Alex and Luisa and their mother, Ivanna, are united in The Truth. Alex looks up to her confident older sister, while striving to follow in Ivanna's footsteps as a ‘good Witness'. But when Luisa starts to question the advice of the Elders, she makes a life-altering transgression that threatens to expel her from the congregation. Unless Ivanna and Alex can persuade her to return, they must shun her completely. This challenge becomes more painful when their family is faced with another heartbreaking test of faith.
