Jesse Dean is a recently discharged soldier who had a rough upbringing, but because of his wife, he found God. Now he is totally devoted to his faith. He and his wife move to Philadelphia so he can take a new job as an outreach leader at an old church whose membership has been declining. Everything is going well and he starts connecting to the community, but he discovers an abortion clinic directly across the street from the church.
He goes to the pastor and to several others in the church and tries to get their help, to no avail. One day, something tragic and personal happens to him while he’s going about his everyday routine. He comes to the point in which he begins to take action himself. However, the more involved he gets, the more resistance he gets from those in the church and community. His wife, who thinks his actions will get him fired or land him in jail, also turns against him.
Finally, he must make a choice, either to take the easy way out and back off, which is what everyone wants him to do, or face a major confrontation, which will require him to put everything on the line — not just his job, but his freedom and marriage, as well. This film encourages people to stand up for what they know is right, particularly as it pertains to taking God’s truths into society to address social issues. “Voiceless” addresses the spirit of retreat as Christians engage the culture that has developed within the Church.
