Life as a Mormon missionary isn't what 19-year-old Brandon Allen expected: so many rules and so few successes. Los Angeles is as unrepentant as Sodom and Gomorrah. He's forced to share a small apartment with five young prank-loving missionaries and, to top it off, his first companion, 29-year-old Marcus Dalton, proves to be a harsh mentor. After only one day as a missionary, Allen is ready to hang up his necktie and go home. His point-of-view changes, however, as he begins to see the struggles and sacrifices that the other missionaries endure: Dalton, he soon learns, is fighting a losing battle with cancer. Banks, an African-American missionary, was disowned by his family when he joined the Mormon church. Kinegar, a fifth-generation Latter-Day Saint, finds himself doubting under the intellectual attacks of anti-Mormons.

Gwen Dutcher is credited as "Sexy Mormon Lady." This is not an actual character in the film, but Richard Dutcher's wife. She gets another "crazy credit" in his film Brigham City. See more »
This film makes a lot of attempts, and for that it is admirable, but it's total lack of accuracy of a Mormon mission really prostitutes the faith and the greatness of missionary work. The ridiculous 29 year old Elder Dalton (no missionaries are allowed out after 26) who is known as pops by everyone including the mission president (no mission president should or would ever use such nicknames) could be acceptable if he didn't die from a brain tumor. How many preposterous things can happen in one movie? This gets a 3 out of 10 for it's attempts, but let's hope Dutcher learns how to write a story before his third film.
