From the pages of Genesis, Lot and his family are confronted with the impossible task of identifying ten devout souls to prevent the destruction of their home. Along the way they experience the complications of faith, and learn that the price of survival can be dear. Leavened with humor and humanity, Lot's Wife reimagines the Biblical tale as an Anne Frank like coming of age story.
