Ernie is a man of simple means. He likes his ripple as much as he likes to hang out with his bum friends in the back alleys of the inner-city. Ernie runs a mission that's in danger of foreclosure. One day Ernie's given the idea to enter a Bible trivia contest. Winner takes $10,000.

Everyone is welcome in the contest. The Catholics, the Muslims, and even the United Gay and Lesbian Youth and Melissa Etheridge National Fan Club.

Angel is a black angel sent by God to help Ernie out. But Angel has an assignment for Ernie to complete. In order for Ernie to succeed, he must convince an "at risk" teenage lesbian named Trish to not run away with her Muslim girlfriend. It's up to Ernie to convince Trish that God has a plan for her life.

Ernie soon realizes that in his attempts to turn Trish's life around, there are plenty of cracks in his own faith.

In a Bible trivia contest were you have laying on of hands, double facials, and talking in tongues, you can guarantee that the wonderful collision of religion and faith go hand in hand to produce a memorable alliance of unlikely characters.
