The film is financed and distributed by the LDS Church, a first for the church. It is shot in documentary format and will be translated into 10 languages.

Some reviewers praised the movie for its "slick" cinematography.

The film grossed $2,509,808 in its opening weekend, placing it outside the top 10. As of October 2015, it is listed 34th in revenue-producing documentary films.
