Their father, Oren, is a respected member of the community and science professor at the local college. Yet their mother s depression and Grace s religious fervor threaten the seemingly perfect family, whose world is upended when Grace returns from a missionary trip to Mexico and discovers she s pregnant with she believes the child of God.

There, they prepare for the much-awaited arrival of the baby while building a makeshift family that includes an elderly eccentric neighbor and a tattooed social outcast who drives an ice cream truck.
