God in Man: Part II

A most fitting soundscape by EJ the Witchdoctor with words by artist, Kevin Sipp. Enjoy and stay tuned as we continue to illuminate the varied search for the divine.
Annie James spends her evenings praying in the run-down shack she calls her sanctuary. She prays for her eight-month pregnant daughter, Jeannie, who struggles to keep her heroin addiction at bay. One night of desperation sends Jeannie in search of the drug she swore she would leave behind. Deep in the throes of her high, helpless in her raging body, Jeannie goes into labor. As if jolted by her daughter’s suffering, Annie throws herself before the altar of God. Transformed, Annie must now use this awakening to enter the dangerous world of the dope house and rescue her ailing daughter. What ensues is an intimate catharsis between mother and daughter that breaks through the unspoken cycle of destruction and offers the possibility of redemption.
