Set during the evangelical revivalist tradition of the mid-twentieth century, Tent Revival tells the story of Ida, a young woman on the road with her family, pitching their tent, and spreading the Word. As they travel from one small Kansas town to another, Ida wrestles with doubt, questions her father’s “gift,” and struggles to find her own voice on the wide midwestern plains.

Deb scrupulously maintains the pristine surfaces of her 1990s white suburban life. But when her son is accused of sexual assault, guilt threatens to tear her apart. Twenty years later, Dana seems to be holding it together as a queer black woman in Trump’s America, until her past creeps into her already troubled present. Through visual metaphor and dark humor, The Girl Is Chained tells the story of two women and the night that both divides and connects them
