Event description

Description

Heaven on Seven is a feature comedy film that takes place in modern day Chicago, Illinois. Warren Griffith aka Smiley is a 40 year old minister at Greater Hope Tabernacle located on the south side of Chicago. He inherited the church/business from his late father, leaving him responsible to carry on his dad’s legacy of 50 years as one of Chicago’s most influential preachers. Smiley feels the dual pressure of
having to fill his father’s shoes and remaining loyal to his childhood friends. Smiley’s childhood friends Chino, Sweeny, JoJo and Lucky all 40 years of age have been hustlers all of their lives spending most of it gambling at “The Spot”, a pool hall set up for them to make a living. Once “The Spot” was torn down
along with many of the housing projects in Chicago, Smiley’s compassion for their hustle and loyalty to his friends causes him to allow Chino to run the gambling hustle out of the basement of the church. Smiley attempts to keep the hustle and his faith separate by creating a number of stipulations. It’s during
this time a single young rookie reporter, Kristen Williams, jumps at the opportunity to publish a story on Smiley as this month’s “Man of the Community“. Unfortunately, due to Smiley’s different approach to the gospel, he has begun to lose long time church members, causing bills to go unpaid and maintenance problems to arise. The only thing growing is the illegal gambling spot and Smiley’s interest in the young
reporter Kristen. Smiley uses his humor and charm to convince Kristen and others that everything is fine until her jealous, obnoxious and prying co-worker, Paul McGee, discovers “The Spot” and seeks out to uncover Smiley for the crooked preacher he believes he is. In a final effort to save the church, Smiley contracts to bring in world-renowned preacher, Pastor Prince Jasper. Unfortunately, a scheduling conflict causes a large gambling competition to occur on the same day as the Pastor visit. With the guilt of his father’s legacy looming, black mail attempts by the local Alderman armed with information from Paul McGee, and the fear of losing his new-found love, Smiley must find a way to make all things right or risk
losing everything.
