The soundtrack for this film is enough to keep most church going people entertained, but the plot is strong by itself. Viewers are given a sneak peek into the other side of church. Ministers, musicians and members are cast as regular people with lives burdened with common problems that cause inner turmoil, grief and conflict. Young viewers can enjoy this film, but it is geared more for an adult audience. I highly recommend this film to people who enjoy the black church experience. The only slight shortcoming is the underdevelopment of a few key characters. This film is somewhat inspirational and has a subtle preachy tone. Most of the worship scenes are a little overplayed and not what most of us see in our local congregations.
