The Day Shall Come

UK, USA 2019 | 88 minutes | English | Hebrew subtitles

In contemporary Miami, a broke, charismatic African American preacher, who brings hope to his small community of believers, receives an offer that may save his family from the eviction order they face. In his wildest dreams, he could not have imagined that the potential benefactor works for the FBI, and that in fact, the offer is bait intended to add a violent dimension to his genuine social agenda and frame him for illegal actions. The Day Shall Come, comedian Chris Morris’s second film as director, is a sophisticated action-comedy, which according to its creators is “based on 100 true stories,” that reveals the farce at the very heart of national security agencies in the US: it’s much harder to catch a terrorist than to create one and then catch him.
