Four young American Mormons are sent to Finland by their church to preach the Word of God. For the teenagers, the mission marks their first trip away from home. Equipped with the Book of Mormon and a tireless will to do good, they encounter one of the most introverted and unbelieving societies in the world in Finland. As a result, the youngsters must contend not only with a completely foreign language and sceptical interlocutors, but also with homesickness and emerging doubts. Director Tania Anderson accompanied the young missionaries at close range to create an intimate and tactful insight into a religious community with its very own rules.
