RJ and Chris are two teenage boys raised in Mormon communities. Though both are poster boys for their church with perfect academic records and pretty girlfriends, buried feelings soon rise to the surface when they are assigned to serve a mission together as part of their rite of passage. Now, they will have to make sense of the conflict between their desires and the rules that govern the only world they know.

You see them everywhere, Mormon Missionaries dressed in their white shirts, ties and suit pants. With their short cut hair they ride on their bicycles and knock on doors, trying to convert the world to their brand of religion. In their Church Community they are revered for exemplifying to the world the wholesomeness and goodness of being a young Mormon youth.
RJ and Chris are no different. Both were born and raised in the Mormon Church. Both accelerated academically, progressed ecclesiastically, earned their Eagle Scout at a young age and had pretty girl friends. And now it's their turn to serve a mission and experience the Mormon rite of passage.
Unknown to them, serving a mission would not only open stranger's doors to "preach the Gospel" to as they were taught but secrets of their own lives would be awakened while in the service of their fellow man.
The Falls captures the lives of two American teens struggling to make sense of the conflicts between their worlds, their feelings and each other. What they find in themselves and in each other is unpredictable but a compliment to the human spirit.
