As a boy, Jerry was two different people. At home, he was quiet and meek, aspiring to Jehovah’s Witnesses ideals. At school, or with his father on weekends, he was the future comedian. The first part of The Truth explores his innocence, trying to balance the fear of a world he was told was on the brink of armageddon, and the drudgery of being denied after school events, sports, and “worldly” concerns. And so, we seek out Witnesses on the streets of LA and find another young man, very much like him.
