Freddy Manning (Al Shearer) owns his own extermination business alongside his pal, Junior Walker (Charles Q. Murphy).  When the duo run into money troubles they decide to rob a liquor store, unaware that its proprietor is an Asian mobster.  Now Manning and Walker are $10,000 in debt, and face death if they fail to pay up.

 

For quick cash Freddy dons a minister's robe and becomes a preacher, modeling himself after profitable televangelists.  What begins as a ruse later becomes a genuine calling when Manning discovers that he has healing powers.
