God has a grand design... Guess who has to build it?
The last time we saw Evan Baxter (Steve Carell), he was being tormented by rival, Bruce Nolan, onscreen, live from their Buffalo TV station. But as time passed and Evan has made up with Bruce, he’s gone onto bigger and better things. Newly elected to Washington DC as a congressman, Evan has left Buffalo, New York, in pursuit of a greater calling.
But that calling isn’t serving in the illustrious ranks of America’s politics, but being summoned by the Almighty himself (Morgan Freeman), who has handed Evan the task of building a new ark, much as Noah did before. With time passing by and his family belittled by Evan’s newfound realisation, Evan will have to do the work that God has given him in what promises to be an unusual adventure, for a man who just wanted to serve his country might actually be serving humanity.
