Shaun Micallef's Stairway to Heaven: Mormons
Mormons
Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  SBS  |  January 18, 2017

Comedian and writer Shaun Micallef is on a quest to find the very meaning of life itself. Envious of those with 'unshakeable faith', Shaun journeys across the globe immersing himself into some of the world's most unique religions and beliefs. In this episode, Shaun starts his spiritual adventure with church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. In their heartland of Salt Lake City, Shaun eats, prays and lives with the Mormons through privileged access into a usually closed world. He works with young missionary Mormons sent off to the jungles of Fiji, and bunks in with breakaway fundamentalist polygamists in the deserts of Utah. Shaun wants to understand this devout faith so entwined with the development of the USA, and centred around the remarkable contents of the Book of Mormon.
