Set 1965 Los Angeles, Mr. Church begins with a stranger arriving on the doorstep of 10-year-old Charlotte "Charlie" Brody (Natalie Coughlin) and her single mother Marie Brody (Natascha McElhone), who is battling breast cancer. They soon learn that the quiet man, Henry Church (Eddie Murphy), has been hired by Marie's recently deceased former lover to cook for them and help maintain the household.

As Mr. Church's time with the Brodys extends from months into years, he becomes a father figure for Charlie during her formative years, nurturing her love of literature and making a lasting impact on her life. Even as Mr. Church tries to keep his own life separate from the Brodys, he eventually learns that the connection he feels to Charlie is what family is all about.
