Complications arise when Thom begins questioning of her faith and this perceived 'gift' setting off a series of events and emotions that opens up the racial and socio/economic issues of the community, his family and her church’s pastor, a dynamic and commanding man, who is a pivotal force in the unfolding events that lead Eshie to her true voice."
