The film follows a 14-year-old girl who practices a form of radical Catholicism in an effort to get closer to God.

The distributor plans a domestic festival run followed by theatrical, digital and home video releases in 2015.

The deal was finalized this week by Film Movement co-president Adley Gartenstein with Thorsten Ritter at Beta Cinema.
