Description: Darren, a morally vacant and debt-ridden advertising executive in New York, travels back to his small southern town in Alabama to attend his aunt's funeral--and more so, to cash in on an inheritance. However, soon thereafter, he discovers that in order to collect, he must first lead the local church gospel choir to success at a national competition. Desperate for money, Darren embarks on the nearly impossible challenge of turning the choir of lackluster parishioners into Gospel gold. In order to rejuvenate the malaised locals, he searches frantically for the best voices in town and finds them in some unconventional places: the county jail, the barbershop, an R&B dance club, and several points in between. Along the way, he works to win the heart of Terri, a beautiful single mother with a voice of satin, who turns his mission around.
