Now you may say -- NOT ON MY BENCH! Ah, but you will. You see, there is a pleasing building with a charming bench that looks like a perfect place to relax in a mixed neighborhood. It's been many things. You would never believe that the "Storefront" would convert to a basement Church.

The Community lives and struggles with many hardships - and there is the money. There isn't any. They are in dept. They work struggling every day of their lives. Sure - many work and try to save money -- but the higher ups, get the dough. They don't care if the 'Storefront people' don't have enough money to keep their house in this poor community. "Remember, the high flying rich, train people to flop!"

In the basement is a barren room where a Preacher just sits there and dreams about having enough people to come to his Church. Someone seeks help for the owners of the house. They dream of being able to make up the $30,000 that they need now. They have asked bankers and crooks, to help them with a second mortgage. However -- the brokers and bankers are trying to take away the property in a sleazy way. Oh sure - they make you believe that they will help - but they don't, and they won't!

Yep - it's the plot and the power. The people that work and live in the upper class go for the lower class. They emotionally want to trick the lower class in a secret way. The tricksters hold you in their grip - and they are not giving up. They have other plans for the property. And they don't care if they kick you out of their home.

Hey, you know what? This is a tough, Bare-Knuckle cat-and-mouse story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. But you will believe in the impossible. You will find that this story matters most of everyone's life. The staggering performances will make you laugh and break your heart at the same time.
