Vertical Entertainment has released a poster and trailer for the coming-of-age comedy drama Yes, God, Yes.

“In the Midwest in the early 00s, sixteen-year-old Alice (Natalia Dyer) has always been a good Catholic girl. But when an AOL chat turns racy, she discovers masturbation and becomes guilt-ridden. Seeking redemption, she attends a mysterious religious retreat to try and suppress her urges, but it isn’t easy, especially after a cute boy (Wolfgang Novogratz) starts flirting with her.”
“Alice’s sense of shame is spiraling when she uncovers a shocking truth about the retreat’s most devout. Desperate and confused, she flees and meets an unlikely ally (Susan Blackwell) who offers an alternative view of what it means to be good. For the first time, Alice realizes she can decide for herself what to believe and finally gets the release she needs.”
Yes, God, Yes features a cast that also includes Timothy Simons, Wolfgang Novogratz, Susan Blackwell, Francesca Reale, Alisha Boe, and Donna Lynne Champlin.
