Portrait d'une famille ultra religieuse du Middle West.

Phyllis and Phil Tobey tell how they turned their lives around when they found religion through a branch of conservative Christian fundamentalism. Their staunch faith pervades every aspect of the small community’s days, and their young son is already questioning his willingness to submit. From the exorcisms performed in the back of a veterinarian’s clinic to hands-on healings at a convention, they strive to rid themselves of all kinds of illnesses and demons. Co-directed by the late Richard Leacock, Community of Praise is a peculiarly American take on religious belief and fervor that reveals a heartfelt longing for community and wholeness.
