Since childhood, Kayla Perez has despised the person responsible for every traumatic experience in her life, from her father's death to the loss of her innocence. With a heart filled with anger and bitterness, Kayla strives to live far away from her oppressor until she meets Samuel Jerrod, who serves the person she hates most: God.
Pastor Samuel Jerrod's caring and patience softens Kayla's heart - but just as she embraces the idea of a loving God, tragedy strikes again. Will Kayla lean on her budding new faith, or will she spiral out of control and lose both salvation and Samuel?
