Synopsis

Tired of being a Preacher’s daughter and longing to experience more of life, 20-something ANGIE KING strikes out on her own for the very first time and joins a traveling gospel show. In this modern-day rendition of the fable of The Prodigal Son, she soon discovers life on the road is tough but fears going home with nothing to show for herself, or worse, to a father who no longer loves her…

Dove Review

Letoya Luckett is a very talented young lady. She does a fine job in her role as Angie King, the daughter of a pastor who begins to yearn for some pleasure outside of church. She can really sing and does so in the church as a gifted soloist. Her father, Bishop King (Gregory Alan Williams) holds tight reins on her. A little too tight. Angie feels as if her strict father hardly allows her to breathe. When they have a heated disagreement, she leaves home. Unfortunately, she soon meets up with a bad character named Devlin Mitchell (Durrell “Tank” Babbs) who coerces her into his bed, drinks and uses drugs, and soon begins hitting her and physically hurting her.

Angie, believing she can’t return home, continues with this unfaithful man and works as an understudy in a traveling gospel show, despite her increasing unhappiness. She soon is confronted with the most important decision of her life. Can she go home again and, if so, will she?

There is a very talented cast in this film and the twist is the story of the Prodigal Daughter, instead of the traditional biblical story of the Prodigal Son. As the content suggests below in our content listing, there are some sexual comments and the physical abuse of a woman, as well as the drug use of a few characters. The filmmakers obviously intended to use realism in this film to show the radical change that takes place by film’s end for a few characters. We are glad to award “Preacher’s Kid” our Faith Based Seal with a caution for sex, violence and drug use. See content descriptions below.
