Ed "Boilerroom" Tanner is a scoundrel, a scam artist who makes his living bilking the public. His last partner has in turn swindled him out of all of his money. It is the Christmas season, and as he is walking along the streets of downtown Houston, wondering where he is going to sleep the night, he tosses one of his last coins into a Salvation Army pot, just for luck. Violet, a young Salvation Army woman with the face, figure and voice of a veritable angel thanks him. Immediately, he decides to seek shelter that night at the Salvation Army mission where she works. And thus begins the most unlikely partnership in the most unlikely of endeavors this side of heaven: God's Fan club, where, for a fee, believers vie for the chance to write God and get an answer in the mail. When these two opposites fall in love it is anybody's guess at the outcome, but you will be laughing and crying until the end, rooting first for one and then the other as their affairs become inextricably entangled.
