Noah Funk, a newly-elected Mennonite pastor, who is determined to rid his community of drug traffickers by betraying a fellow Mennonite to the police. But instead of solving the problem, Noah's actions trigger an ultimatum from mob leader Eli Voss: in order to protect his family, he must get involved in the illegal operation. Noah decides that if he must work for the mob, he will secretly gather enough evidence to dismantle the organization.
As Noah’s black sheep brother, Abel has been a constant disgrace for Noah and his family. Picture Michael Corleone’s hapless older brother Fredo in “The Godfather” and you’ll get a sense of Abel’s frailty and foolishness. A gentle soul, he just isn’t cut out for the day-to-day demands of a Mennonite life or a secular existence. And he probably would have drifted off into the shadows, never to return, if not for Noah’s insistence that he pose as the father of a boy orphaned after his parents are murdered. This shotgun father/son relationship forces Abel to pretend to be the man he could never be in real life. By doing so, he rekindles his own sense of self-worth
