Storyline

Traveling Route 66, a charismatic preacher, Reverend Johnny Jones, and his seductively beautiful Latina girlfriend, Rebecca, find their lives spiraling out of control as they travel from small town to small town; running their scam on the churches they encounter along the mother road. He's able to convince people he has the power to heal their illnesses and solve their most dreadful life experiences. But what the couple think is their scam begs the question does he really have the power? It's a question that haunts him and only intensifies his inner demons. Scarred for life, his childhood abuse from his evil father won't soon go away. He finds temporary refuge at the bottom of each bottle of tequila and endless grams of cocaine that goes up his nose. His childhood demons will not subside, neither will his vices. In the end, his powers serve as a blessing and a curse. Hang on tight while we follow this perilous couple's journey into the abyss of miracles and tragedy. Written by Norman McGuire

Not too shabby! Entertaining!
20 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

I have always been a Bonnie & Clyde fan so when I saw this movie... I said what the heck, I will give it a try. I remember a young Jesse James from "Pearl Harbor" and "Blow". Glad to see he is transitioning from a kid actor to an adult.

Over all the film had a good flow. There was never a dull moment. The filmmaker's kind of lost me with some of the flash backs. But, I can see what they were trying to achieve.

All I can say, is Jesse James snorts a lot of drugs in this film. So, keep the kiddos out of the room with this one.

Glad to find some good Indy's out there. Keep up the good work.
