    SYNOPSIS

    Eternity Rolls is a character-driven documentary about the Reverend Dorian Baxter (aka Elvis Priestly) and the faithful congregation of his Elvis-themed Independent Anglican Church, Christ the King, Graceland. Shot in an observational style, Eternity Rolls follows Baxter from his home in Newmarket, Ontario to the gates of Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.

    Besides telling the personal story of Baxter's struggles to realize his own church, Eternity Rolls also examines our cultural obsession with Elvis Presley, the quest for the sacred in everyday life, and how performance and celebrity affect the sanctity and traditions of religion.
