The Utah Foster Care Foundation, which will benefit from the
premiere, is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to
recruit, train, and retain foster care families. Since its inception
in 1999, the Foundation has helped increase the number of foster care
families in Utah by over 25%.
BRIGHAM CITY tells the story of a small, fictional Utah town that is
rocked to the core when a stranger is found murdered near her car.
Dutcher plays the county sheriff who is also a Mormon bishop in the
sleepy town. Brown plays his eager young deputy.
Anticipation surrounding the release of the next "Mormon Film" has
been high. The filmmaker has been tight-lipped as to the content of
the film, only revealing that the plot centers around a murder that
occurs in the picturesque (fictional) town of Brigham, shattering its
tranquility and testing the limits of its faith. So far even the
film's rating has remained a mystery.
