In the Midwest in the early 00s, sixteen-year-old Alice (Natalia Dyer) has always been a good Catholic girl. But when an AOL chat turns racy and lewd, she becomes guilt-ridden. Seeking redemption, she attends a mysterious religious retreat to try and suppress her urges, but it isn’t easy, especially after a cute boy (Wolfgang Novogratz) starts flirting with her. Alice’s sense of shame is spiraling when she uncovers a shocking truth about the retreat’s most devout. Desperate and confused, she flees and meets an unlikely ally who offers an alternative view of what it means to be good. For the first time, Alice realizes she can decide for herself what to believe and finally gets the release she needs. (78 mins)

“Karen Maine’s naughty but nice coming-of-age story showcases an exceptional performance by Natalia Dyer.” – Variety
“Loaded with razor-sharp writing that takes more than a few stabs at the idea that sex outside of marriage (even masturbation) will send you to a fiery hell, the film finally gives young women a movie that shows it’s okay to figure out what you like and believe in on your own terms.” – Boom Howdy
“’Yes, God, Yes’ is a coming of age tale with a fantastic mix of holiness and hormones.” – Cinapse
