The FBI plan to turn an idealist preacher into a criminal by fueling his madcap revolutionary dreams.

A somewhat naive impoverished African American preacher, along with his worried family and a small group of followers, brings hope to the Miami projects by preaching about his own version of God. To save his family from eviction, he is forced by a nefarious character to agree to an arms deal, and possibly start his revolution for real.

But what he doesn’t realise is that he has become a target of a complex false flag operation by the FBI, to first turn him into a terrorist and then arrest him and score points in the US’s war on terror… However, what the FBI does not realise is that, although a vocal revolutionary, the preacher is also a firm believer in pacifism, a loyal citizen and a very unpredictable character.
