Pastor Luke struggles to attract a singel congregant to his rural services. Moving to the city in search of work, he stumbles across musician, Kate, and her brother Simon, a debt-ridden nightclub owner whom he revivies from a near-fatal overdose. Simon is inspired by this "miracle" to transform his nightclub into a church, using Luke as its preacher. With some musical assistance from Kate, the church flourishes, fulfilling Luke's dream of cleaning up the streets and making a real difference to the community. But some of the city's crime lords are not so pleased with the dwindling levels of vice on the streets. Bowing to pressure, Simon feels he must betray Luke and delivers him into the hands of the crime boss. Now Pastor Luke will face his ultimate test.
