When Harley comes home after two years as a missionary he’s looking forward to seeing his mum Jeannie, and sister Bina, and settling into his normal life. Instead, he finds his old friends have moved on, his sister doesn’t laugh at his jokes anymore, and his mum treats him like a child.
Then he meets Simon, an evangelical Christian, and his life cartwheels in a direction he never anticipated. With new friends and new beliefs, he concludes his mum has been lying to him his whole life.
Jeannie is convinced that nothing could ever disrupt her forever family; they’ve already survived so much, including the death of her beloved husband. But when her son returns from the mission field and makes a life-changing decision she can’t understand, Jeannie finds her family disintegrating around her.
Based on a true story, The Saved Saint explores the conflict between evangelical Christianity and Mormonism, and the heart-wrenching consequences when believers cast judgement on others.
