In “Every Tongue Confess,” the summer heat is rising and flames are flying high in this whodunit focused on uncovering the culprit behind a string of church fires in Boligee, Ala. As the temperature climbs, church goers start gossiping and secrets slip out — a widow touched by the Holy Spirit, a son with big dreams, a stranger with a mysterious past, a young girl whose voice has left her, and a father who struggles to connect.
Wrapped in combustible comedy and the sweat-soaked gospel and blues music of the Deep South, intergenerational stories of loss and redemption collide.
