Sean (Colm O'Leary), an Irish immigrant to America, finds his heart and mind in disarray. Having returned from military service in Afghanistan, he befriends Ike (Will Oldham, A.K.A. Bonnie 'Prince' Billy), a strong willed evangelical, who endeavors to ensure his 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, human need and frailty, NEW JERUSALEM explores the allure and limitations of modern utopian belief.
