Four friends representing four different perspectives on faith and dating illustrate the trials and tribulations of modern dating as a Christian.
Before there was Vegas, there was Newport. In 1950s Newport, KY, gambling and prostitution are a $20,000,000.00 a year industry, with more casinos than anywhere else in the country at that time. Fueled by a personal vendetta, Fr. James O’Brien arrives in Newport and sets to work rounding up a team of ministers to combat the corruption. Since the police force is almost totally corrupt, the team must learn to play the game on the town’s terms, using tactics that are at times underhanded and morally questionable and toeing the line between cooperation with evil and the interests of the greater good.
