Arrested for violating his parole, guitar-playing car thief, Wesley Benfield (William Lee Scott), is sentenced to a half-way house in the middle of the Bible belt. Ned Sears, who runs the house, is an eccentric zealot, currently forming his own hymn playing band, who recruits young felons based on their musical talents. Wesley and the motley assembly of lawbreakers are confined and condemned to playing "church music" to retirees and grade students. Then Wesley meets Vernon (Lucas Black), an autistic savant whose rocking blues piano playing electrifies them all. Vernon provides the band with the spark it needs--and together, with singer Shanita Scott, they form the red hot Killer Diller Blues Band. Now, all they have to is break the law one more time.
