Set in the 1820s, this story looks at the beginnings of the Mormon Church through the eyes of the Steed Family. The family moved from Vermont to Palmyra, New York, only to discover that their new land lies at the center of religious controversy because one of their workers, Joseph Smith (Jonathan Scarfe), has claimed to have been visited by angels. Then the two Steed brothers, Joshua and Nathan (Eric Johnson and Alexander Carroll) vie for the affections of Lydia (Tiffany Dupont) and find themselves on opposites sides of the religious controversy. The more the family attempts to free itself of religious contentions, the more its members risk losing their ties to family in the pursuit of religious meanings in their lives.
