Margaret Alexander, a female pastor of a storefront church in the 1960s, is greatly admired by her congregation. After her long-lost musician husband returns, Margaret struggles to keep the congregation's respect. She almost loses her leadership of the church when the congregation sees how she deals with her 'wicked' husband and her wayward son, David. In the end, her final reconciliation with her husband purges Margaret of bitterness and gives her the strength to continue her religious mission.
