Hired by an ambitious small-town pastor to find sacred relics in the Holy Land, a self-proclaimed biblical archaeologist (Rockwell) comes up short and his attempt to cover up his failure fuels a comic conspiracy.

Directed and co-written by Jared Hess of Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre fame, the movie also stars Leslie Bibb (A Good Old Fashioned Orgy), Will Forte (Nebraska), and Danny McBride (The Is the End).

The PG-13-rated film’s DVD and Blu-ray incarnations include two behind-the-scenes featurettes and audio commentary with director Hess.
