Every year, over 60,000 young missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are sent across the world to preach their gospel.

Sundance Film Festival selection The Mission follows four Latter-day Saints teenagers from their training in Utah to their missions in Finland, home of Europe’s most private and secular people. Tania Anderson’s film tracks these wide-eyed, impassioned teens on their two-year rite of passage, as they struggle with being immersed in a new culture, and the daily rejections they inevitably receive throughout their task.

Granted total access by the Church, The Mission is a sensitive observational documentary detailing the challenges and triumphs of these missionaries’ journeys.
