Twenty-five years ago, a motley group of friends met as kids at a summer camp where the head counselor secretly taught them their disabilities could be "cured" through the power of prayer. Today, the group has gathered to mourn the untimely passing of one of its members. Over the course of the night, old wounds are uncovered, friendships are tested and the truth surrounding their late friend becomes troublingly clear.
