Plot Summary

Musically gifted, teenage Grace (AJ Michalka) wants to do more than perform in her father's church band. She longs for pop stardom, but her father, a former music idol, warns her that fame often comes with a high price and that using her gift in the service of God is a loftier goal. When his former manager pays a visit, Grace decides to take his offer of a shot at the big time. But, the more successful she becomes, the more she feels pressure to compromise her religious values.
