Becoming a father for the first time, Henry moves his family home to Australia where his wife Elizabeth is reunited with her parents and pregnant, sickly sister.When as a result of their beliefs the family suffer a series of avoidable tragedies, Henry begins to question the true character of his leader. Elizabeth, however, driven by grief and guilt holds ever tight to her faith and, even after a harrowing encounter with the man she and her husband once so revered, refuses to face the shocking truth.Disheartened by failed prophecies and impelled by disturbing rumours of sexual abuse, a defiant Henry relocates his family to church headquarters in California, where he faces an agonizing choice between continuing to live a lie and the possibility of losing his family forever.
