A newly wed Christian couple enlist with a mission to evangelise in Mongolia, a country where evangelising is illegal. While the couple’s intention is to change the world, the real change happens unintentionally and on a more personal level.
By intimately following the couple through ups and downs in a foreign culture over a period of 4 years, they will reflect upon their own role as evangelists and aid personel. The film questions religious freedom, development work , and cultural imperialism by revealing their own mindset on how to change the world. As the story progresses, unintentional changes take place on a personal level.
