Years of bouncing from one foster care home to another have left Mason Jones (Patrick Davis) feeling unwanted and unloved. When the 17-year-old moves in with the Lewis family (Pete Freeland & Robyn Lively), they seem just like all of his previous foster parents: middle-aged withæone child and called by God to change his life. However, unlike the others, the Lewis family is determined to keep Mason around, despite the initial wishes of their son, Nate, who views taking Mason into their home as an attempt to replace their deceased son and brother, Jack.
With zero chances left and no other options than being locked up in juvenile detention, Mason starts attending a court mandated support group. There, he finds a surprise ally in the pastor’s daughter, Lacey (Jeannette Grout), and learns important life lessons about humility, respect, and fresh starts. Written and directed by Kevan Otto, In the Name of God also stars Eric Roberts, Garrett Palmer, Susan Chambers, and John Ratzenberger (Cheers, Toy Story).
