Description

Snake handlers are spiritual renegades belonging to an obscure sect of American Pentecostalism: part of a century-old tradition of worshipping with venomous snakes during church services. Seeing themselves as the vanguards of salvation in a morally bankrupt world, believers put their lives on the line, each and every week, to prove themselves before God. Set deep in the hills of Appalachia, Them That Follow explores this unseen way of life—telling the story of a pastor’s daughter whose forbidden relationship forces her to confront the dangerous traditions of her father’s church. Featuring Olivia Colman and Jim Gaffigan.
