Branson, Missouri. Some call it the new Nashville or the Las Vegas of the Bible Belt. Over the past ten years, nearly 40 theatres have shot out of the ground in this once sleepy Ozark Mountain town of fewer than 4000 inhabitants. Here in America’s heartland, country legends and television and stage stars from yesteryear have reincarnated themselves and offer up good ol’patriotic, Christian entertainment to six million tourists. Light-hearted and ironic, HEAVEN ON EARTH takes a behind the scenes look at this mythical American town. We meet colourful figures and see the spectacular resurrection of Jesus in the musical THE PROMISE. This is a film about God, country, and country music.
