The Last Sin Eater is a story that takes place in the 1850’s Appalachia. Ten year-old Cadi Forbes feels responsible for her little sister’s death, so she searches out the one man she feels can take away her sin — The Sin Eater. But in her quest for redemption, Cadi Forbes (Liana Liberato) uncovers a dark secret that threatens to divide her family and community. Ultimately, Cadi shows them the truth in Jesus, reminding us that the human condition is beyond human remedy; only Christ provides for the absolution of sin.
