A shepherd without a flock, Pastor Luke struggles to attract a single congregant to his rural services. Moving to the city in search of work, he stumbles across feisty musician, Kate, and her brother, Simon, a debt-ridden nightclub owner whom he revives from a near-fatal overdose. Simon is inspired by this ‘miracle’ to transform his nightclub into a church, using Luke as its preacher.
With some musical assistance from Kate, the church flourishes, fulfilling Luke’s dream of cleaning up the streets and making a real difference to the community. Meanwhile, some of the city’s denizens are not so pleased with the dwindling levels of vice on the streets. Bowing to underworld pressure, Simon must betray Luke, delivering him into the hands of arch-crime boss, Mr Rothschild. Now Luke will face his ultimate test…
“The Holy Roller” is an uplifting comedy-drama written by Australian actor, Angus Benfield (“Lex & Rory”, “E-Street”, “Wait Up Harriet”), and directed by Kiwi filmmaker, Patrick Gillies (“Offensive Behaviour”, “Kitty”).
