The movie takes place during the 1965 Watts Riots and is based on a true story. The main character is Richard Kelly (Cedric Sanders) who is a black man that is put on probation and instead of going to prison, he is sentenced to become a seminary student in an all white school. Richard has no desire to become a pastor, however, is determined to finish the class or he has to go to prison. He has many obstacles that come in his way, and the movie shows many difficult situations that he has to overcome. This movie does have many known stars in it such as Lou Gossett Jr and Lauren Hutton.
I enjoyed the story, I had to keep reminding myself that it was set in 1965 and it makes you realize how things have changed through the years. This movie was true in being faith based and really has a great message of faith and how to stay obedient to GOD. I would definitely recommend this movie.
