SYNOPSIS: Nationally acclaimed evangelist John Luther is the last obstacle in the way of passage of sweeping religious reform legislation in the United States Congress. When he refuses to support the legislation, a U.S. Senator and Luther's own supporters abduct and frame him in the murder of an innocent teenage girl. Luther escapes police surveillance in search of the truth and suddenly a once-normal life is targeted by a team of ex-military operatives who wage a relentless campaign to eliminate the incriminating evidence. As evangelist turned fugitive, Luther vows to expose anyone involved with, or profiting from, the girl's murder.
