Jon Lake is a successful computer tech, a loving father of two vibrant young girls, Laura (5 years old) and Gail (11 years old), and husband to his wife of thirteen years, Tracey. She is beautiful, supportive and works as a massage therapist. Jon and Tracey work hard to keep the family united and happy. They both have overcome the tragic crib death of their firstborn son (12 years ago). They focus on work, staying healthy, and raising their intelligent and spirited girls. Jon still thinks about his little boy and the traumatic loss.
Jon is the main computer tech for the largest law firm in Los Angeles. He just successfully pitched a huge proposal to upgrade the firms entire computer system. He's been working 70 hours a week to make it happen, and the stress is effecting him negatively.
Lately, Jon has been having trouble sleeping and frequently wakes up statrled from a recuring dream of a large waterfall exploding. The movie opens with this startling scene. Jon wakes up next to Tracey in a cold sweat.
Jon's waterfall nightmares have increased in intensity and frequency. After two months of losing sleep he's looking exhausted all the time.
At the same time he keeps receiving subtle messages to take a trip into the wilderness and get away from it all.
After some heartfelt discussions with his wife, Jon decides to go camping deep into the high mountains of central California. He figures a full week alone is the remedy for his stressed out life and reoccurring dreams.
After being guided to this unique campsite at the foot of the waterfall in his dreams, Jon sets up camp hoping it will not explode and all this will make some sense in the morning. So many strange coincidences have happened along the way, but no answers. Jon has another vision of his firstborn son. He's reminded of the spiritual connection they had.
Once again we are in the waterfall dream. Jon is walking towards a raging waterfall. It increases in volume and intensity as he moves closer. More and more till the familiar explosion occurs. This time, instead of waking up at home, Jon is still at the waterfall cowering on his knees as it glows and pulsates . But now there is a living presence and a morphed form as part of the glorious conscious waterfall.
It is alive ?
Jon cowers from the powerful waterfall and yells for it to answer. A thunder bellows out from the falls pulsating as a giant humanoid form in the water. Jon yells, "who are you?" and the raging waterfall entity transforms into the entire landscape, one that is alive and conscious. Completely overwhelmed, Jon screams for his life and instantly the scene shifts to Jon and a 70-year-old gray haired man in camping gear standing across from each other at a campfire.
The old man claims to be the all, the one, the infinite...GOD. Jon request proof and sure enough the (god) fulfills every test. It stops the waterfall, darkens the sun and levitates Jon above the trees. Jon even tries to hit the old man with a stick, only to have it return and strike him in the head. Reluctantly Jon gives in and starts asking questions. Profound, heartfelt and very skeptical questions. The ultimate questions.
What follows is an interview from a logical, truthful and inquisitive sceptic. Jon has been an atheist since his son's death. The same question we have all wondered about. But the answer will be much more than just a dialog, it's becomes an experiential journey through all of time and infinite space. With the latest in motion pictures special effects, let the greatest journey on film begin. Riding shotgun with God.
Jon's 1st question...Which religion got it right? God answers with, "Why don't we go and see for ourselves". In a flash they are transported to the Sermon on the Mount. Jon is an invisible witness and God is a character in the historical scene. He prefers to blend in with his peeps, God pleasantly jokes. They visit all the major prophets and witness their profound talks in person. ALL the messages are the same, all are about love.
Jon and God travel to other planets to visit other life forms at different stages in their evolutionary development. From primitive to highly advance beings are spread endlessly across the boundless galaxies. All of them striving for survival and always learning how to expand their awareness, knowledge and wisdom. Every life-form eventually dicoverers the power of love, but do they embrace it to its full potential?
Jon discovers the secret to all life is in being connected in an infinite universe where there is no beginning and no end. Which means there's no need for a creator. It is all happening in the now as a continuous choice...and everything is a choice. Your life, your death and even the death of Jon's first-born son. We are all the creators; we are all one. It seems like this is making sense to Jon. It should alway make sense....until.
After being told that not only did Jon's son choose to die as an infant but Jon actually chose to experience his son's abrupt death, He came into this life to experience the biggest heartbreak possible. Jon's brain can't phantom that he would ever do or alow this and freaks out. In a moment of spontaneous rage, he take a wild fisted swing at god. Then all goes black. Jon sees a beautiful memory of his son again.
After the punch is thrown, Jon awakens right in the middle of a full scale emergency helicopter evacuation out of the deep canyon with the waterfall in the background. He is taken home and spends the next two weeks in deep depression and inner emotional conflict, just lying in bed and sleeping most of the time. The wilderness experience replays endlessly in his thoughts.
After two weeks of Jon lying around depressed in bed, his wife Tracy suggest that Jon share his story with the world as a form of therapy. Even though she doesn't really believe he camped with god, she does believe the positive massage of love is important to share. God told Jon that we are all one and love is the answer to every situation in the world. Sharing this may help him with his depression and confusion.
His friend Mike and co-host Mary interviews Jon on thier morning drive-in radio show.
They try to make fun of him and poke holes in his "All Mighty Camp-Out" story, but
Jon ends the skeptical interview with a profound declaration. If being kind and sharing love is crazy, then I must be insane because it's the best solution I've ever heard. Mike and Mary agree, It's hard to argue with that simple logic to be a good person.
The Associated Press picks up the radio story and multiple news stations, talk shows and internet vloggers share it all at once. Over 4 billion views in a month. The story about the man who went camping with god becomes the biggest and most talked about news in the world. Jon is now a world celebrity and on the cover of TIME with the headline, "The Man Who Camped with GOD"
With the entire world talking about Jon, some say he's the incarnation of christ & others believe he's Satan. They followed him wherever he goes. His girls have to leave school. His wife is harassed and fanatics either want spiritual guidance or Jon's head on a spike. A large devided and diverse crowd has gathered in front of Jon's house. Jon speaks to the crowd and with some profound wisdom and love , they actually unite and embrase each other
Jon has become so popular that Oprah brings back her talk show for one more special interview with, "The man who camped with God". Her guest celebrity panel is Richard Dawkins, Dr Drew, Deepak Chopra, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Catholic Cardinal Anderson. After being scolded and accused of blasphemy, Jon shares a truth bomb and the show ends with the attacking Cardinal actually denouncing his religion. Everyone in the stusio and watching are shocked.
After the profound declaration of Cardinal Anderson and the show ends, Jon overhears a production assistant refer to Jon as "just another quack". He missed the Cardinal's big reveal and just thought Jon's another crazy guy on Oprah. He leaves.
feeling totally drained and disheartened. Once home, Jon and Tracey take the girls to the park. As they relax, a small girl running by them falls in front of their bench. As Jon grabs her to help her up, she looks into his eyes. Jon sees her face magically transform into the face of his first-born son. The familar smile and laugh is absolutely that of his son. Instantly Jon realizes that his son never died, but incarnated into this beautiful girl. He holds her up with tears of Joy and laughs with her like they did many times before.
We hear God's earlier message, "Jon, I will be there when you need me the most"
The screen splits into multiple scenes around the world of people walking, working, commuting and socializing. All of a sudden they all hear a voice and stop.
"I LOVE YOU"
