Debby (Adesua Etomi) and Moses (Blossom Chukwujekwu) are a married couple; both are vibrant gospel singers, but Moses constantly hit Debby, such that he has made her suffer a miscarriage four consecutive times already. It gets worse as Debby becomes the much more successful gospel artiste in the music industry. Debby refuses to let anyone know about the violent marriage, not wanting her husband to be judged, and trying everything possible to improve on herself, waiting on God's miracle

She meets Thomas (Majid Michel), a secular music producer, an ardent smoker, who claims he is an addict. Thomas wants Debby to be signed in his label, an offer she vehemently refuses, but Thomas won't back off. Moses starts noticing Debby and Thomas together and he starts to get jealous, sighting Debby's new fire when they make love, even though Debby has assured that there's nothing to be worried about; Moses becomes more violent regardless. Debby leaves home to Wunmi's (Leelee Byoma) place; Debby's closest friend, the family's doctor, and a church member who has become aware of what's going on. Debby eventually returns to Moses, after his endless apologies.

On their way back from a media interview, Moses accuses Debby of patronizing him during the interview; when Debby apologizes to avoid a fight, he accuses her of pitying him. After a heated argument, he drops Debby in the middle of the road. Thomas sees Debby walking and he teases her until she agrees to accept a ride to his home. In his home, Thomas convinces Debby to change from gospel to inspirational music and join his label. After the formal discussions, Thomas shows Debby around his house and they both get cozy with each other. Thomas brings up the issue of her violent husband revealing that he knows. He asks her why she's still with him, and she explains that she's worried about what the church and the society would think, as she's a role model to millions around the world. Thomas advises her to think about herself, do what she thinks is right and move on; he warns her that Moses might end up killing her. When they're about to leave to sign the record deal, Thomas kisses her; she feels disgusted and slaps him, Thomas apologizes.

Debby signs the record deal, with an appointment for 8am the next morning. Thomas takes her home very late in the night, telling her to forget the kiss ever happened. Debby enters the house to pack her belongings, but Moses again pleads for a last chance. She forgives him and tells him about the record deal and her appointment for next morning. Debby wakes up at 7:15am, only to find all her clothes socked in water in the bathtub, and Moses nowhere to be found. She puts on Moses shirt and trousers, so she can meetup with the appointment.
