Bereft of resources and savings, Darius and Josephine Blackmon fall hard from their middle-class lifestyle and resort to living in their car. The couple has two young children to care for, but they have no family or friends to help them out of their hardship. Meanwhile, Darius' once unshakeable faith begins to fall apart as the pressures of trying to find work and keep his family together start to mount.
While Darius and his family try to maintain appearances during the day and stay out of sight at night, a prominent teacher named Kevin Allen is working to keep kids in school with government vouchers, filling in where the pay checks stop. Little does Darius know that his path will soon cross Kevin's and make an unimaginable difference in the Blackmons' lives.
