Faith and organized religion get tested in the murky waters of the musical comedy, The Book of Mormon. Two missionaries belonging to the Church of Latter Day Saints are sent to a town in Uganda to spread the message of god. The young Mormon missionaries, Elder Price and Elder Cunningham have to face to the reality of the Ugandan people, who are more worried about issues like AIDS, poverty, war, and famine, than religion. An unlikely pair, they set out to achieve their mission, but face rejection and disappointment early on.
The musical ponders on the blurring lines between the written word and interpretation of the book of god. Managing their own conflicting personalities, Price and Cunningham have to rise to the occasion and commit to the mission.
