SYNOPSIS

Susan, a science teacher from Manhattan, starts work in a small rural Kansas town that’s been ripped apart by a tornado. When one of her pupils – the damaged, articulate Micah – takes offence at an offhand remark about how life on Earth began, Susan is thrown into an ethical storm about science and faith that leads her to fear for her safety.
