Timothy Shepherd is annoyed at having to visit his parents over Thanksgiving. It means exchanging his fast-paced life as a successful financial adviser in New York for a sleepy rural farm and his annoyingly religious mother and father.
But instead of a boring country break, his trip becomes an occasion of grief and intense introspection.
And just when he thinks he can return to normal life in the Big Apple, he witnesses two events which challenge his views on life.
Will Timothy answer God's call to be the best person he can be? Or will he revert to his materialistic lifestyle?
