The film revolves around four different stories, each with its own set of characters, that interconnect. The first story focuses on the character of Shirley (Chandra Currelley-Young), the matriarch of the church and her family. Shirley is a strong-willed woman who runs the church with an iron fist. As the story unfolds, we find out that Shirley is battling cancer and is struggling to keep the church afloat as her health deteriorates. Her family resolves to keep the church running and keep her spirits up, but there are moments of tension and conflict as this is a difficult task.

At the same time, Darnell finds himself drawn to the church and is trying to find solace and hope in the sermons.

The final story is about the character of Wanda (Chandra Currelley-Young), a no-nonsense janitor at the church who is dealing with her own set of problems. Wanda is trying to keep her family together after her husband walked out on her and her teenage daughter. As she struggles to pay the bills, Wanda finds herself at a crossroads and has to make some tough choices about what kind of future she wants for herself and her family.
