This film opens the door on Jehovah's Witnesses. They are moral conservatives who stay out of politics, but their many human rights court victories benefit all who live under democracy. They refuse blood transfusions on religious grounds, but they are eager guinea pigs in support of new science to advance bloodless surgery. In Nazi Germany, they could fight for Hitler or go to the concentration camps; they chose the camps.
Following two Jehovah's Witness families who stand firm for their often controversial and misunderstood Christian faith, this program reveals how Jehovah's Witnesses have helped shape history beyond the doorstep, telling a story of full dimension: controversy, criticism, integrity and inspiration.
"Riveting and illuminating. KNOCKING takes us inside the world of Jehovah's Witnesses in a way that is utterly surprising and moving." -- Anderson Cooper, CNN
