A young singer turns his back on God and his father's church when tragedy strikes. He returns years later to find the once powerful congregation in disarray. With his childhood friend creating a "new vision" for the church, he is forced to deal with family turmoil, career suicide, and relationship issues that send him on a collision course with redemption or destruction.

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.
