Newlyweds Amelia and Marcus Sheffield are recent college grads, trying to stay afloat in Los Angeles while searching for their dream jobs. Marcus hopes to become a mega-church pastor. Amelia has an esteemed music degree, and longs to play piano professionally. The Sheffields are clearly city people.

But when a small town church offers Marcus a job, the couple’s dedication to their dreams and each other is tested. After a risky compromise is made, Amelia falls into a dark emotional place, where she finds skeletons she’d fought hard to deny. In desperation, she calls out to God. But why can’t she find him? While Amelia struggles, Marcus learns news that nearly crushes him. He must lean on his faith to withstand the pressure, or risk losing his wife forever.
