Attorney Scott Ellis is defending Lester Garrison, a 16-year-old
accused of opening gunfire on a Sunday afternoon church gathering.


At the same time, Scott’s volunteer work at the local high school
brings him into contact with Kay Wilson, an English teacher and former
girlfriend. Unknown to either of them, Catawba High School is not just a
place of learning, it’s a battleground for an age-old struggle between
good and evil. On one side are praying students and a janitor
with extraordinary faith; on the other is a deeply troubled
young man intent on mass destruction.

Caught in the middle, Scott and Kay learn that lasting victory will require the ultimate sacrifice.
