    SYNOPSIS:

    Exposing the central conflict between Euro-centric and Afro-centric religions, this thought-provoking film offers a socio-historical context as it re-visits the 1917 – 1951 Prohibition Ordinance on the ‘Shouter’ Baptist religion of Trinidad & Tobago. Going further, it challenges the laws that legislate against a belief system, and questions the effects of such legislation both on members of the faith and the general public.
