Does God Love Women? portrays Hilligje Kok, a deeply religious but free spirited woman in Staphorst, a village located in the Dutch “Bible Belt”.

With passion and humor, Hilligje seeks to improve the position of women within her church as well as in the orthodox Christian political party SGP.

But a visit by Hilligje’s gay son Willem brings her off balance. Why did she not show up at his wedding? Hilligje’s well-intended struggle for equality is now putting at risk her friendships, family relationships as well as her position within the congregation.
