Synopses & Reviews
Pete has always been religious and looking for salvation, so he easly falls under the mesmerizing influence of the Preacher Man who comes to town to lead a revival meeting. When the Precher Man invites Pete to join him on his mission, Pete can't say no, even if it means leaving behind his family, his best friend Rufus, and the home he loves. But during the long night he waits in vain for the Preacher Man--who has left town with a teenaged girl instead of Pete--he learns whom he can really depend on.
