Synopsis by Jonathan Crow
Richard Dutcher writes, produces, directs, and stars in this fish-out-of-water religious drama about Mormons pounding the streets of Hollywood, looking to save a couple of souls. A small town elder journeys to the big city and joins a missionary group led by the gruff Marcus Dalton (Dutcher). Together, they go door-to-door trying to convert people to their faith, Mormonism. Just when he's about to hang up his necktie and starched white shirt, he learns of the hardships that the others have endured -- Marcus has cancer, Banks, an African-American Mormon, was disowned by his family, and others have been harassed by nefarious anti-Mormon intellectuals. Soon, the young man learns that the first person he needs to convert is himself.
