Tired of her life as a minister's daughter and longing to experience more of the world, a 20-something young woman with the talent to enthrall people with her voice joins a gospel show but discovers that life on the road isn't what she had imagined. Now, she fears going home with nothing to show for herself, or worse, to a father who no longer loves her... In this modern retelling of the story of the "Prodigal Son" set to a Gospel sound track, young Angie King leaves her life as the Preacher's Kid working in the community and singing in church, lured by dreams of fame and charismatic singer Devlin Mitchell. But she eventually learns that the dream and reality are far different as Devlin tires of her, then turns abusive, and that performing in a traveling show is not as rewarding as singing for a congregation that loves her. Now, the only question is will her pride ... and her father ... allow her to return home?
