The story of a young singer who turns his back on God and His father's church when tragedy strikes. Unexpected events force him to return home and deal with difficult issues regarding family, relationships and faith.
Drama - This is faith-themed film that isn't overly preachy with specific
religious ideas so much as simply aiming to inspire. While the film
is targeted toward older viewers, it can pass as proper viewing for
PROFANITY: A couple of miscellaneous profanities. SEX/NUDITY: Very fleeting sexy dancing. VIOLENCE: A brief fistfight. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol and tobacco. ACTION: None. COMEDY: A comic line or two; nothing off-color.

Roger EbertFull Review Good If the plot wanders through several predictable situations, and it does, the movie never lingers too long on those developments before cutting back to the best gospel music I've seen on film since 'Say Amen, Somebody.'

David Taylor (Boris Kodjoe) is a dynamic young R&B star whose chart-topping albums have earned him fame and wealth, but whose decadent lifestyle has estranged him from his father (Clifton Powell), the Bishop of his hometown church. When David learns his father is ill and near death, he returns home to try and reconcile and discovers his former best friend, Charles (ldris Elba), is poised to become his father's successor at the church - and threatens to ruin everything David's father worked so hard to achieve. Torn between his successful new life and the one he used to know, David has to decide whether he can give up his own desires to protect his father's legacy and make peace with his family, his beliefs, and, ultimately, himself.
