Synopsis

Jared Hess co-writes and directs this adventure comedy starring Sam Rockwell, Amy Ryan and Danny McBride. After being recruited by Dan Lazarus (McBride), an ambitious pastor looking to raise the profile of his church by creating an exhibition of famous religious artefacts, struggling archaeologist Don Verdean (Rockwell) jets off to the Middle East in search of a number of elusive sacred relics. Accompanied by assistant Carol (Ryan) and local explorer Boaz (Jemaine Clement), Verdean soon encounters difficulties in locating the goods and hatches a plan to fake a number of discoveries. However, with deadlines fast approaching and a difficult Boaz demanding payment to keep their fraudulent plan quiet, Verdean struggles to remain in control as his scheme begins to unravel around him.
