Lynn, a lonely elderly woman, finds solace in an unlikely vision of Jesus that happens to be on the shorts of a young African man at her swimming class. Convinced God has sent him to her, Lynn befriends the young man in hopes he will save her from her loneliness.
Followers is a dark comedy drama about faith and loneliness, how the two intertwine and how we all need something or someone to follow.
