This first in a planned series of films devoted to telling the tale of the Mormon faith in America, The Book of Mormon charts the recorded history of Nephi (Noah Danby) as he leads his people from Jerusalem to the "Promised Land" of the Americas. Along the way, Nephi must contend with his infuriating brothers Laman (Mark Gollaher) and Lemuel (Cragan Foulger), battle the elements, and protect his family from the wilds as he carries out God's mission for him. Though not sponsored or endorsed by the church, The Book of Mormon made its premiere in Utah and areas with a high LDS-population before expanding to some other states.
