It's not unusual - to not take Lincoln’s ideas seriously. He is a dreamer, choosing to believe in humanity's good qualities. However, he is also very aware of humanity’s potential for evil, so when an incomprehensible event creates an unexplainable mystery, his family must consider, among other things, whether Lincoln's ideas were so strange.
The deeper Lincoln Moore explores his disturbing dream, the more convinced he becomes of its weight and significance to humanity, prompting him to question, “How do you change the world?” He shares his dream with his best friend and writes a book about it. It becomes a bestseller, making Lincoln famous. Unexpectedly, a real-life global event parallels his book, drawing four generations of his family and friends into an event that is not fiction and cannot be ignored. They all struggle to unravel its meaning, but soon after, life for everyone goes on as usual. The event’s meaning and significance fade for most, but not Lincoln. Lincoln’s niece, Madison, gives birth to her first child and the family celebrates a new life, but when her baby unexplainably turns up missing, a new reality hits home that is too personal for his family, and the world, to ignore.
Lincoln considers, “What if a deliberate intelligence is imposing some unknown sentence on humanity, removing the innocents, and notifying us that something is terribly wrong.” The consequences that follow cause Lincoln to consider thoughts even he never really believed were possible. The media explodes with a frenzy of speculation, from an unknown virus to the End of Days arriving. Madison’s younger brother, Drew, confides in Lincoln against his girlfriend Shannon’s wishes. Madison and her family struggle with the loss of her baby. Lincoln focuses on helping Madison find a reason not to give up while his older brother, Calvin, only wants her to accept the facts and not give in to Lincoln’s beliefs. Drew and Shannon surprise everyone when they sneak away to get married only to return and reveal that Shannon is pregnant. No one knows what to make of this, but Lincoln tries to turn the unexpected news into something that gives the family a reason to believe that anything is possible. Lincoln must come to terms with the unexpected reality that the answer does not rest with unknown intelligence, but in our own reflections... and unfortunately for us, “It’s Nothing Personal.”
