A skeptical guitarist at a career crossroads. A Christian singer at a crossroads of faith.
Now two weeks and three shows together will decide everything for them.
Bryan Lane is standing at a crossroads. Just kicked out of the rock band he founded ten years ago, the gifted guitarist and songwriter ponders what's next. Through a series of coincidences, Bryan reluctantly agrees to play with a Christian singer named Cassie McCourt, who's in desperate need of a guitarist for the last four shows of her tour.
At first glance, Cassie seems like a typical Christian performer: peppy, positive, and squeaky clean. But Cassie proves to be full of surprises as a darker side lurks beneath her pristine image. And the non-religious Bryan's very presence on tour shakes up the status quo, placing Cassie squarely within the bullseye of her Christian audience. As Bryan tries to understand why Cassie is teetering on the edge of disbelief and his feelings for her intensify, he finds himself moving ever so slowly back to his childhood faith.
In the end, Cassie and Bryan are faced with crucial decisions that will shape not only their professional careers, but also who they are and will become.

Our Porcelain Faith (Clean Version)
Even if none of them would have admitted it, this climatic moment had been stalking the band for months, shadowing every press appearance and concert. But now that the moment had arrived, no one seemed to know what to say. Curt never did make eye contact with him and Aaron never faced him again before he departed. Bryan slammed the door on his three bandmates and the last ten years of his life.
