As the Steed family attempt to settle peacefully into the new community, they discover that the help they have hired to clear their land is at the center of a religious controversy.

Benjamin Steed, the family patriarch, hires Joseph Smith and his brother as farmhands, unaware that Joseph holds a controversial reputation in town.

Steed's son Joshua befriends Joseph, and learns that the other man has been contacted by God on numerous occasions, which the townspeople doubt.

Joshua has faith in his friend, however, and must prove it by defending him against his brother Nathan.

Meanwhile the town’s rough crowd has planned a bad fate for Joseph.
