Righteous Acts


When the Solon family leaves True Church, an evangelical storefront congregation on the rural outskirts of San Antonio, homeschooled teenager Judith finds herself lonelier than ever. Then she joins the cast of a megachurch hell house, where teens stage sins to scare audience members into salvation. She believes she’s finally found the Christ-focused community she’s always yearned for—until she doesn't land the coveted role of the Abortion Girl. Judith convinces herself she's the only player doing God's work—and it's her holy duty to expose the true wages of sin.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
