Synopsis

A 51-day stand off between FBI and the Branch Davidian cult ended with a tragic fire in Waco, Texas. 76 people died, including charismatic cult leader David Koresh. Clive Doyle, a follower of Koresh's Messianic preachings survived, while his youngest daughter died in the inferno. 25 years later and still a believer, all Clive can do is wait and pray that one day his Messiah and daughter will be resurrected.
