In the Truth / Patiesībā (2016 - Ongoing)

In the Truth is a story about a person's relationship with religion in a world that's vastly secular-minded. A young person's efforts for staying loyal to the principles of the Bible and dealing with the fear of being alienated by parts of society.

"In the Truth" is an expression used by Jehovah's Witnesses referring to people, who share their religious views. For instance by asking somebody "Is she in the truth" the person is actually asking "Is she a Jehovah's Witness".
