SUNDAY is a hybrid narrative/documentary shot over three days at a church in Santa Barbara, CA. Starring the real Pastor Frank Schaefer—who was defrocked from the Methodist church in 2013 for performing his son's marriage to another man—SUNDAY tells the fictionalized story of a Pastor struggling to guide his conservative congregation toward love and understanding after the SCOTUS Marriage Equality ruling.
Performed by a mix of actors and non-professionals, SUNDAY is a raw, realtime experience of a church divided over its beliefs—where one man's hate is another man's love.
