Teenage Steven and his father, Corey, take to the road with a stolen Bible from a cheap motel, an old army tent, and less than the best of intentions. Tired of being poor, Steven's father is certain that preaching the Word of the Lord is the easy way to fame and fortune. But just when they've got their act down pat and the money is rolling in, Steven and Corey begin to realize that what they'd originally thought of as a "good lie for good reasons" is all about avarice and power and, ultimately, guilt.
