Hezekiah T. Cleaveland is the handsome pastor of New Testament Cathedral in Los Angeles. His beautiful wife, Reverend Samantha Cleaveland, is the power behind Hezekiah and his megachurch, running their national television ministry with a firm hand. The problem is that she’s tired of living in her husband’s shadow.
When Hezekiah meets an unlikely lover and falls in love, he must grapple with the conflict between his religious beliefs and his actions. An unscrupulous reporter learns of the relationship and sees it as an opportunity: it will either establish him as an investigative reporter or make him a rich man through blackmail.
Jealousy and an unbridled lust for power drive Samantha to devise a plan that would remove the one thing standing between her and the spotlight she desires. During a Sunday morning sermon, a shot rings out in the santuary, and Hezekiah is killed. After the assassination, Samantha convinces the congregation that she has set aside her grief for the good of the church, and she is installed as the pastor of New Testament Cathedral. How long will she be able to carry on this charade?
