Sean (O’Leary), an  Irish Immigrant to America, returning from military service in Afghanistan, finds his heart and mind in dsarray. He befriends Ike (Oldham) a strong willed Evangelical Christian, who endeavors to ensure Sean’s salvation. Inundated by a relentless fragility, Sean is confronted by a choice  between the temptation of certainty and the chaos of the world around him. A meditation on friendship, need and frailty, New Jerusalem explores the allure and limitations of modern utopian belief.
