Reverend Tienie

Drama | Afrikaans | 97 minutes


Wonderphil Entertainment (USA)



After sixteen years as the reverend of the mother church, Tienie Benade is confronted with a steep decline in the number of churchgoers and a modern society that is rapidly changing. Do clergymen, or even the church, still have a role to play in this world? He tries to adapt and make sense of the changes, but, in the process, he alienates his wife and children. Tienie struggles to regain his self-confidence, win back the love of his family and provide guidance to his congregation. Based on the play by Dana Snyman.
