Henry Donner is a young, passionate, Los Angeles pastor with a growing congregation who is sincerely dedicated to his mission. After years of struggling to overcome addiction and his cryptic past, he is paid an unexpected visit from a seemingly troubled visitor. She challenges his heartfelt rhetoric with her cynical views on existence and behind her sharp tongued intellect lays a hidden agenda. The impending revelation that they share a dark and intimate past comes to light and Henry is faced with a reality that threatens imminent exposure – is she there to denounce, denigrate or reclaim him?
