Richard Kelly is serving time in jail having been accused of committing a horrible crime. Although he states his innocence, he has two choices. One of which is attending an all-white seminary. Richard has dreams that doesn't involve preaching, but he finds this choice better than jail.
Very few accept Richard, and as he copes with his new probabtion sentence, he learns that friends he had before seem against him as well. During this time, his mom becomes terribly ill and needs extreme medical care. The doctors first need five thousand dollars to treat her. Can he get through this? Richard faces recurring dreams that he can't seem to understand. He meets "the gardener in the basement," and begins to realize what his purpose in life truly is, and he is a true friend.
While Richard is trying to achieve his goal, he is rejected by many that cannot see past race. He begins to see how much strength he really has mentally. Richard is threatened by the seminary president that if he follows through with his goals, he will be put back into jail.
Find out how this young man handled these situations and trials. This is a very good movie that teaches us that God has control and has His own plans in our lives. In God's eyes everyone is equal and we should see everyone the same as well.
