Dan Reynolds was a normal Mormon kid, who held firm to his faith in God, family and community — even when he became a giant rock star. As the creative force behind the wildly successful Imagine Dragons, Dan comes to a crossroads when he witnesses fellow members of the Mormon church spurned because of their sexual orientation.
Teen suicide rates in Utah have skyrocketed, which many attribute to the Mormon church’s opposition to same-sex relationships. Reynolds and openly gay former Mormon Tyler Glenn, lead singer of Neon Trees, decide to create LoveLoud, a music and spoken-word festival designed to spark dialogue between the church and members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
Believer follows Reynolds as he risks his relationships with faith, family and fans to stand up for what he believes in — that we should all be loved and accepted for who we are.
