Kai'Ro, after finding the life and freedom he went searching for at the Cross, is sent by the King back to the City of Doom and his old neighborhood as an ambassador of hope.
Apprehensively he returns, haunted by past failures, an awareness of ruined relationships, and the damage he caused during his former life. He hopes that his transformed life and the power of the King can be used to rescue his community and friends from all but certain destruction. Kai'Ro quickly sets out to renew trust and offer hope to his former girlfriend, Evangeline. More than anything he longs for her to find life in the King.
Within days of his return Kai'Ro is confronted with vicious persecution, temptation and the hardened cynicism of family and friends who knew the old Kai'Ro and his tainted past. He discovers the cost of discipleship as well as the struggles that accompany shining the light of the King into the darkest of circumstances.
Evangeline, challenged by the new Kai'Ro, sets out for the Heavenly Highway hoping the King can restore her broken life too. She is quickly disappointed by fickle friends and confronted with people who persecute her and try to make her turn and go back. Evangeline, by the King's grace and with the help of some friendly companions on the Heavenly Highway, makes it to the Cross and loses her burden. The King instructs her to return and join Kai'Ro in his efforts to introduce the City of Doom to life and hope.
