Rural Texas. Sara is a young girl raised in a family of goat farmers. Her parents homeschool their twelve children, rigorously following the precepts of the Bible. Like her sisters, Sara is taught to be a devout woman, subservient to men while keeping her physical purity intact until marriage. When Sara meets Colby, a young amateur bull rider, she is thrown into crisis.

Yellow Day poster

Awards Season might have begun, as there were six new releases in the $10,000 club this past weekend.

The Zero Theorem poster
