Stumped.

I just received this summary of a movie coming out on DVD. I’ve blocked out the particulars, because I’m more interested in the film’s plot structure…

[INSERT MOVIE TITLE HERE] is a powerful coming of age drama about [MAIN CHARACTER], the talented daughter of a stern preacher. When [MAIN CHARACTER] leaves home to pursue love in all the wrong places, and to seek stardom through a traveling gospel show, she discovers heartbreak, hurt, and the loss of everything she’s left behind.

Broken and abandoned, will she find her way home to her father, or will her pride and ego leave her with an empty life?

Golly, that question at the end has me stumped. What will she do? I may lose sleep over this. Anybody want to make a guess?

    I do hope “Butterfly Kisses” is in the soundtrack.
