The film is produced and directed by Thomas Purifoy, Jr. “This film started from a conversation with my 10-year-old daughter about science, history and the Bible,” Purifoy said. “She wanted to know how the things in the world are explained by what she reads in the Bible. Her questions led me down a lot of different paths where I heard and saw some amazing things. I tried to put as many of them as I could into the documentary.”
