Teresa is a liberal atheist who believes in free love. Michael is a strict, God fearing virgin, and a member of a Christian purity group who has vowed not to have sex until he's married. When the two accidentally meet they fall madly in love, and Teresa decides to leave her wild life behind and join Michael’s purity group. But their love faces a great challenge when they discover that abstinence is much harder than they thought it would be. Things get even more complex for the two when Teresa begins to question the motives of Gary – the charismatic mentor of the purity group. Following a series of unexpected events, Teresa and Michael break up and switch sides – Michael loses his faith while Teresa becomes a radical Christian and decides to marry Gary. Michael must discover Gary’s secret, and unveil his evil plan before it’s too late.
