It is the year 2065.

A young anthropologist, with his partner, embarks on a journey to St. Vassar - an isolated town. In this world, Christianity never arose to historical prominence, but instead stayed fringe and resulted in a small, northern town of St. Vassar. This story, in both satirical and serious fashion, comments, critiques, and shares the good, evil, and strangeness of Christianity and its adherents. It is told through the eyes of a young anthropology student, who writes the following ethnography on his startling, surprising, and sad exploration of the people who call themselves Christians.
