One of the most indelible love stories of the modern age, Children of a Lesser Godbrings to life the passionate and personal connection between a teacher at a school for the deaf (Mr. Jackson) and the remarkable woman (Ms. Ridloff) he meets there.

Jesse Green of The New York Times raves, "Joshua Jackson is a revelation in a tour de force role, and Lauren Ridloff is sensational and explosive."
