Ernest Toller (played by Ethan Hawke) is an ex-military and chaplain who, after the death of his son in the Iraq War and the separation of his wife, is completely devastated. The church in a small town north of New York becomes his refuge as a reverend, feeling guilty for encouraging and supporting his son to join the army. To try to clear his thoughts, he will begin to write in a diary all the dark things that go through his mind. In his work as a priest, he meets Mary (whom Amanda Seyfried plays), a woman who, after becoming pregnant, suffers her husband's rejection of the child, thinking that climate change will end the world. Toller will be the couple's advisor. The film is directed by Paul Schrader.
