As a young boy, Pharez (Eddie Watson) watched his mother experience financial hardship after his father was murdered. She then lost her job at a hospital that she was loyal to, and Pharez lost his best friend in an accident. Through all the turmoil, his mother still avidly worshipped God but Pharez questioned a God that watched their lives decline.
Eighteen years later, Pharez was a successful lawyer and he had officially renounced God. His mother was still a huge part of his life and she watched him live a life lacking spirituality while he adored the wrong woman. Only prayer could bring about a change of heart.
