Sent to Jesus Camp by his nonreligious parents, Nick gains a new perspective on his sister's suicide and the secret he has been keeping about it, with the help of new friends and the ghost of Jack Kerouac.

In a bizarre attempt to force Nick to confront his grief, his nonreligious parents ship him off to Jesus camp after his sister's suicide. The campers ride donkeys into the desert, snap selfies with counselors dressed as disciples, and replace song lyrics with Bible verses. And somehow, only Nick seems to find this strange. Nick is also being followed around by Jack Kerouac, who's incredibly annoying for a genius-- and a ghost. Nick drops a secret about his sister's death into the PC Box, into which campers place prayers and confessions. When the box is stolen-- and the confessions start appearing around camp-- Nick is disparate to get his confession back.
