In 1926, evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson (Faye Dunaway) disappears from a California beach without a trace, provoking prayer vigils, a month-long manhunt and speculation about her possible death, which her mother (Bette Davis) is quick to capitalize on. One month later, Aimee reappears in Arizona, claiming to have been kidnapped and held in Mexico for ransom. Holes begin to appear in Aimee's story, however, as it comes to light that she's been covering up an affair with a married man.
