This mesmerizing documentary tells the story of Joshua Milton Blahyi, a brutal African warlord turned Christian evangelist preacher. Having renounced his violent past as an infamous butcher, Blahyi sets out on a crusade to rebuild the lives of those he brutalized, reconnect with the soldiers he abandoned, and answer for his sins.
