Wheat and Tares

World news in 2011: Bible teacher and radio presenter Harold Camping predicted that 21 May was to be Judgement Day. Only true believers would be accepted into heaven. Documentary makers Stefan Wittekamp and Suzanne Arts got access to the heart of this group. From up close, they captured the hopes, fears and loneliness of three adherents on film. This results in a unique view on the thought process of true believers Adrienne, Michael and Candace and their families. Filled with excitement and uncertainty, they count the days to Judgement Day. Their actions can scarcely be understood by the unbelieving outside world. A mutual sense of incomprehension and division is the inevitable result. And so it appears that the separation of the wheat and the tares is already taking place far before Judgement Day is said to dawn.
