About this title

Synopsis:

Nora was a radical socialist in Jamaica who had a crisis of faith following the demise of communism in the 1980s. Disillusioned, she joined the church where she became an ordained minister. But it was difficult for Nora to leave her radical past behind and she butted heads with church authorities. The ultimate test came after she decided to have a child, even though she was not married. The church, finding Nora’s actions unacceptable, stripped her of her authority, position, and title. She sued the church for wrongful dismissal and employment discrimination. The court case and the surprising turns unearthed the legal, ethical, and moral dilemmas thrown up by Nora and her pregnancy in a largely conservative church and society.
