Jared Phelps is a "Returned Misionary" (R.M.) for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. When he returns from two years of full-time missionary service, he thinks he has his life under control. Jared returns home to find his parents have moved, his girlfriend engaged to another man and his old boss has closed his business, despite the promise of a job. Jared, derailed, bounces from job to job, befriending the daughter of a general authority of the church, placing himself under increased scrutiny. When he finds himself and a friend in trouble with the law, Jared is left at an impasse whether to lie to get them both off, or to choose the right and face the consequences.
