Uganda is the number-one destination in the world for American Christian missionaries. God Loves Uganda explores their influence from one extreme to the other from building schools and hospitals, to promoting dangerous religious bigotry. As an American-influenced bill to make homosexuality punishable by death gains widespread support, tensions mount in Uganda, and a murderous atmosphere takes hold.

God Loves Uganda gives viewers unprecedented access to people at the center of the controversy, including a preacher who whips his congregation into mass hysteria with anti-gay rhetoric, enthusiastic Midwestern missionaries who clash with world-weary Ugandans, and a heartbreaking interview with gay activist David Kato shortly before his murder. Conflicting motives are revealed of faith and greed, ecstasy and egotism among Ugandan ministers, American evangelical leaders, and other foot soldiers of a theology that sees Uganda as ground zero in a battle for billions of souls.
