Under the warm Bahamian sun, a budding romance takes form. With sweet, unsteady strides, two very different men begin to stray from their culture’s expectations and find the courage to live their lives as their hearts dictate. This collision of fate begins with a trek to the picturesque island of Eleuthera.
When Johnny—a slender painter with piercing blue eyes—loses touch with his artistic voice, a kind teacher sends him to the island to regain his creative passion. While there, he reunites with Romeo, an old classmate whose hidden sexual identity creates a rift between himself and his close-knit family.
Both men cross paths with Lena, the conservative wife of a homophobic pastor, who is unsettled to learn that she has contracted a venereal disease from her husband. Staying with a sexy, progressive friend who also happens to be a minister, Lena faces the harsh reality of her husband’s infidelity and starts to acknowledge that she has needs of her own.
After much soul-searching, all three begin to realize that life is not as black and white as they first believed it to be. One by one, they are forced to face their demons, and their former truths are put to the test. Children of God is a story that is both timely and timeless. –Reeling Film Festival
