MERCY ON THE DOORSTEP tells the story of Corrine and Rena, an alcoholic widow and her born-again, right-wing stepdaughter. This mismatched pair must learn to co-exist in the house that Corrine's husband left behind. It is a story about hope, redemption, and the ability for even the most disparate of philosophies to find a common ground.
