Miles Montego (Ja Rule) has it all - cars, boats, good looks, mansion, money, women, but more importantly, he has a past. Miles is a retired high level drug trafficker who is now completely legitimate. Even though Miles has turned over a new leaf, the DEA can't seem to let him out of their sights. Miles' only downfall is that he is extremely loyal to his circle of friends and former colleagues who are not retired from the lucrative business. Struggling to keep on the right side of the law, Miles meets the one girl of his dreams but she's not the usual type of girl that he's used to dating. Vanessa (Adrienne Bailon) is a church girl in every sense of the word. They are tested to their last ounce of faith and strength in God and each other. God continues to chip away at Miles through struggles from his past, having to live up to his reputation, feelings of unworthiness, the death of his mother, federal charges, his friends being indicted, the strain on his relationship with Vanessa, ...

Great movie that doesn't require sex, violence, drugs, etc.
Finally Hollywood is putting out a movie that teaches values and morals without the use of guns, drugs, cursing, violence, sex, etc. This movie is so different and unique because of the fact that it had values that can actually help the youth. My wife and I left the movie feeling refreshed and positive about our society. PLEASE Hollywood, listen to the example of this movie and realize that you can actually have a positive impact on today's youth. The movie is a great story of forgiveness and redemption and it seems that some critics are putting it down because it outwardly mentions God and Jesus Christ as the source. I wish more movies were about this and used God as the focus. Look around and you will see that we have strayed far from what is moral. Maybe if we turn back to God we can live in the world that we all envision. More movies like this can help that happen.
Thank God for the courage of all those involved in the movie, especially Ja-Rule.
