On the podium, one of his daughters introduces the dance with a short, but poignant speech: ‘We are simply to valuable to give ourselves away to young men who would not treat us with great respect, honor and worth,’ she says to the crowd.

The documentary’s director, Mirjam von Arx, who followed the Wilson family for two years, said he was astonished by how many people in America share their beliefs.

‘And not only in America, but there is a movement gaining strength even aboard like in Europe. A lot of parents say their kids are a lot more conservative than when they were young,’ Ms von Arx told Fox News.

‘There’s a strong belief that father knows best. They really do feel like their father is trustworthy and they trust his opinion.’

And that trusted opinion extends to the sons, as well.

‘They really held the men to the same standards,’ said Ms von Arx.  ‘They are sincere about doing the right thing and honor the women and keep themselves pure. I was very surprised.’

Virgin Tales airs on Showtime July 23 at 7.30pm.
