On the tough urban streets of Washington, D.C., 10-year-old Thaniel Battle (Cordereau Dye) takes up with a gang who plans to rob a shop owned by Jewish immigrant Eli Zeal (Burt Reynolds). During the robbery, Eli puts up a fight -- and in the ensuing chaos, Thaniel unwittingly shoots him. Thaniel's mother, Tyree (April Grace), panics and kidnaps Eli, dragging him and Thaniel to her Louisiana hometown, where she rediscovers her Christian roots and introduces both son and hostage to the church.
