A downward religious trend in young adults suggest a downward trend in religious children. In this documentary, in its mid stages of production, we investigate the relationship between children and religion. Is it possible to raise ethical, moral children who do not have a basic belief in a god or higher power? How do children without a religious foundation come to terms with the concept of death and the afterlife? Do children raised by non-theist parents resent their godless upbringing? Which group, the faithless or the ultra-faithful, faces the most ostracism? Do parents struggle with their decisions? How do the experiences of growing up without religion compare to those of growing up with religion?
