Teddy Michaels is a rockstar preacher with a thriving megachurch, a congregation of thousands who worship him and a wife who adores him. While promoting his latest book, Teddy boasts of his God-given ability to redeem anyone he comes in contact with. But after his sudden death, that ability is put to the ultimate test when he's confronted by a Man in white who won't allow him entrance through the pearly gates.
