Plum Falls, New York, 1940s: Dismissed from Harvard Divinity School for his liberal views, Increase Joseph Link arrives home with a heavy heart.
He gives up his dream of becoming a minister to settle for life on the farm, until the day he is struck by lightning and hears a voice telling him to rise and speak.
Heeding that voice, Increase becomes a preacher, advocating for environmental protection and the end of slavery and war. His growing band of followers calls itself the Standalone Fellowship, and they accompany him on his move west to Wisconsin, to a place of better land and opportunity.
