Before the water rose, there was a KING.

Upon seeking his own redemption, King gets a vision from “The One on Top” (God) to start a church to save the neighborhood from itself. As he prepares for the opening of the church, his pain-ridden family, his past, and Hurricane Katrina swirl- threatening the only purpose he’s ever known.
