John Luther, a contemporary evangelist, is standing as the last holdout for a national endorsement to make sweeping reforms in freedom of speech. As the government is mandating political correctness while covertly waging a war against religious organizations, a U.S. senator and his political allies create a sinister plan of denial and scandal to frame Luther for murder. Suddenly his once normal life is turned upside-down as he becomes a fugitive vowing to expose those responsible. It is a mission that brings him face-to-face with the coming storm of persecution that will threaten the moral ethics and freedoms of America.
