“I’m here to listen,” the priest says, clasping the hands of the grieving mother, who’d been blamed for her baby’s death. Few would listen. When the young woman closes her eyes, she sees her eight-year-old son settling the baby into the bathtub, as the water is running. And then the water is everywhere.
Thy Kingdom Come is a unique and deeply personal rendering of life in small-town Oklahoma. An unknown priest, whom townspeople seem to be awaiting, suddenly enters their lives. A dying cancer patient confesses that she’s grown mad at God, a Ku Klux Klansman that he’s hoping for redemption, an expectant father that he’s afraid for the future of his child.
Unscripted, woven from a dozen real life stories, Thy Kingdom Come reveals life to be alternately precious and harsh, wanting and hopeful.
