    • Synopsis
    • Hannah White (ANDREA BOWEN) loves to party and seems to be on a drug-fueled path to self-destruction. Her partying lifestyle takes an abrupt u-turn, however, when she and her drug dealer boyfriend, Zane, get busted for drugs. She is faced with serious jail time and calls the only person who can bail her out – her father John, the minister of a small East Texas Baptist church. John agrees to help Hannah, but on one condition, she must move back home during her six week probation. Hannah agrees to return home, but isn’t exactly enthusiastic about the arrangement. In her mind, she’s just choosing one prison over another.
      On the journey home, Hannah begins remembering back to four years before when many of her troubles began. We discover that Hannah had once been the ideal Christian daughter, the example. She went to church, obeyed her parents and seemed destined to follow their straight and narrow lifestyle. Recognizing Hannah’s singing talent, John commissions Neal, the church’s young, charismatic music minister, to coach Hannah so that she can use her “God given talent” in the ministry. As Hannah trains with Neal, a romantic relationship develops that neither expected. The relationship inevitably causes Hannah to turn her back on the church, God and even her family.
      Four years later, Hannah returns to her home where little has changed. She is a stranger in her own home. Her parents struggle to reach her, but Hannah isn’t interested in going back to being the “good daughter.” As she sets out to continue her partying lifestyle, she discovers that her younger brother, Caleb, is following in her troubled footsteps. Faced with this disturbing reality, Hannah decides to change her ways. She quits using drugs, gets a job and attempts to reconnect with her family. An encounter with Neal causes her to revisit painful memories that drive her back to the temporary escape that drugs provide, a decision she ultimately ends up regretting.
