In SMALL GROUP, R. Scott Cooper is a documentary filmmaker who's moving his family from California to Georgia for his latest project. A shady producer has hired him to film an expose on the hypocrisy of Christians and "the dwindling influence of Christianity in America." Reluctant to make such a slanted "hit job," Cooper initially declines, but no money in the bank, a $10,000 bonus from the producer, and the announcement that his wife Mary is pregnant with their second child leaves him no choice but to make this movie. Cooper dons a pair of camera eyeglasses and goes to the nearest megachurch, where he and Mary are soon matched with a small Bible study group of their own. Instead of hypocrisy and self righteousness, Cooper finds a sense of community and friendship he had never experienced before, and Mary's new friends encourage her to follow her dreams and open her own yoga studio. After a last-minute injury sidelines one of the group members, Cooper accompanies members of the small group to Guatemala, where he finds deeper meaning and purpose to his faith and his life. But upon returning, as the news of Cooper's initial ulterior motives becomes known, Cooper must find a way to prove to his new friends that he's sincere in his newfound faith and in his loyalty to the group.
