Plot Synopsis

Inspired by true events, PURE is a one-hour drama series that tells the fictional story of Noah Funk, a newly elected Mennonite pastor trying to protect his family and preserve his faith while battling drug trafficking within his community. Noah is determined to rid his community of the scourge of drugs and its nefarious ties to a transborder smuggling alliance with ruthless Mexican cocaine cartels. But just when he thinks he's won, he's thrust headlong into a desperate world of violence, greed, and betrayal. The series opens with Noah under pressure from his congregation, so he takes matters into his own hands to ensure that Gerry Epp and his drug dealing crew go to jail.
