This documentary explores the culture of 50 million American Evangelicals who believe that Bible prophecy dictates the future of mankind and that Israel and the Jewish people play pivotal roles in ensuring Christ's return. The film raises questions regarding how this theology shapes US - Middle East relations and how it may even encourage an international holy war.
Using intimate portraits and archival footage to explore how literal belief in Biblical prophecy, including the Rapture and Armageddon, exerts a dangerous influence on US relations in the Middle East, the film tells its story through the eyes of three evangelical families who are certain that upon Christ's Second Coming they will be "raptured" or lifted into the skies to join Christ while the rest of humanity suffers for seven years during "The Tribulation."
