The story centers around local television news anchor Charlie Duff (David Wilson Barnes) who shocks his co-anchor (Jennifer Westfeldt), boss (Ben Cole), and colleague (Brendan Griffin) as he concludes the newscast with a spontaneous prayer rather than his usual send-off the night after his father dies.

Yearning for connection, Charlie continues his nightly prayers despite management’s initial protestations, rapidly becoming a popular and controversial figure to an ever-expanding audience. Yet in spite of the strengthening bond Charlie feels with the subjects of his prayers and his viewers, he struggles to connect with his ex-wife (Amy Pietz) and estranged teenage son (Noah Galvin).
