Adam's decision to allow a Muslim children's prayer group to use the church for classes brings his congregation's prejudices to light.

Inspired by the clear moral stance he sees in the Islamic classes, Adam decides to take a stand himself and oppose a lapdancing club threatening to open opposite the school. But when he finds himself in one of the branches checking out pole dancers in the name of research, things get rather more complicated.
