Brethren

A 17 year-old-girl brought from Mexico to Canada to be married into a xenophobic religious sect has always dreamed of escape. Twelve years later, she has a young daughter, and is married to a sect member. When she and her daughter are killed in a traffic accident, her husband, seemingly resurrects them from the dead through prayer and fasting.

With a second chance at life, she is more determined than ever to fulfill her goal to leave the oppressive community, but can she bear to leave without her daughter who in death and life has always loved her father or stay and deal with an increasingly threatening community who do not see their return as miraculous, but rather, a demonic trick.
