About me

It's the last chance for law intern Mary Maloney. Twice she's failed the bar exam and if she fails again, she'll lose her job, her home, and her self-respect. Only love keeps her going, but that too seems to be slipping through her fingers.

Mary's college sweetheart, Tom Falcone, has always been "the guy." From a strict Italian-Catholic family, Tom is determined to carry on the family tradition of 'one man, one woman, marriage and children.' Mary fits right into that plan. But after a bitter argument, his pride gets in the way, and he breaks up with her, taking off to Thailand to follow his dream to be a professional golfer.

Alone and lonely, Mary falls under the sway of her high-powered attorney boss. She realizes too late that she's fooling herself—her boss is just a player, and besides, her heart still beats only for Tom. 

Tom follows the beat of his own heart too, dragging him back from Thailand, and hopefully, back into Mary's arms. However, his dream of following the family tradition with Mary may be shattered by the time he returns.

Once he was a gentle soul, a man of peace, but after thirty years of ministering in his gang-infested Chicago neighborhood, Reverend John Archer fantasizes about killing gang members. He fights the sinful thoughts, but the fact of the matter is turning the other cheek hasn’t worked—the gangs are winning. Still, not in the best of health and only a week from retirement, Archer feels if he can hang on, he’ll have fulfilled his duty to God and man. That’s when he looks out the church window and sees a young boy shot in the head. He rushes to the police station and gives a sworn statement. Only when it’s too late does he find out that the gang leader he identified is known for butchering witnesses—and their families. 

Archer scrambles to protect his wife and two children, but before he can, a gang member abducts him and drives him to a fleabag motel outside city limits. Archer prays desperately and believes he hears from God, but the answer surprises—the gang member, Billy, is sick of the gang leader’s brutality too. Even more surprising, Billy’s heart seems to be softening, while Archer’s is hardening. The odd pair form an uneasy alliance and together come up with a desperate plan—an ungodly one. The way of the Lord is to love thy enemy, but the way of the hood is to kill or be killed. With his family in mortal danger, Archer must decide between trusting the laws of God or the laws of the street.
