Barry Ricewater is dying of cancer. He also claims to be the Messiah. His older, hippie wife and his recovering drug-addict brother believe him, but the rest of the family harbors doubts. Barry’s sister and father are preoccupied dodging jail sentences for fraud, and their lawyer is ready to send them to the big house. When an aspiring rapper and his seemingly psychic wife show up looking for the Amerissiah, the family is forced to confront their sins and seek redemption- but are they worshiping a false idol?
