Two Trinities explores the Trinity Foundation and its leader Ole Anthony in their holy quest to bring down televangelists who prey on the poor and the desperate using the lure of the "heavenly lottery." Recognized nationally in the media for its investigations of televangelists, the Trinity Foundation has devoted itself to exposing the self-dealing empires and empty promises of televangelist preachers while keeping to their own mission of picking up the cross daily and helping others.
