Summary, etc.:
ACTS OF WORSHIP is a story of addiction, friendship loss and redemption focusing on the relationship between Alix (Ana Reeder), a young homeless addict and Digna (Michael Hyatt), a successful photographer in Manhattan's Lower East Side. When Digna discovers Alix unconscious on the stairs of her building, she steps in and offers help despite her own fears. Digna befriends Alix and attempts to set her on the path to recovery but not before their emotional and ethical cores are put to the test. On the surface the two women seem to represent success and failure.
