While he was once on the way to becoming a minister, David Taylor (Boris Kodjoe) instead chose to become a popular music star, and the hedonism that followed turned his father against him. But despite the gulf between them, David comes home when he finds out that his father is sick. At the church David once stood to inherit, he finds that the Rev. Charles (Idris Elba), who has been groomed to shepherd the congregation after his father's retirement, has ideas that could ruin everything.
