The movie will follow Trinity Childs (played by Hall), "the first lady of a prominent Southern Baptist megachurch who attempts to help her pastor-husband (Brown) rebuild their congregation and reconcile their faith to make the biggest comeback that commodified religion has ever seen."

Honk For Jesus. Save Your Soul will be shot in a mockumentary style, offering a satirical perspective on the culture of megachurches.
