GRACE UNPLUGGED is a uniquely contemporary faith film set in both the Christian and pop music worlds and is set for theatrical release by Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions on October 4th, 2013.
20 years ago, Johnny Trey (JAMES DENTON) charted the Billboard top five single, "Misunderstood". Then, the hits stopped coming and he crash landed hard, a one hit wonder. Johnny found Christ and a new life for his family, far from the Hollywood Hills. He now serves as the praise music director of Homewood Community Church just south of Birmingham, AL. Serving alongside Johnny is his, now 18 year-old daughter, Grace (AJ MICHALKA).
Beautiful, extraordinarily talented and restless, Grace is so far undiscovered outside church. No longer satisfied with being dad's sidekick, she dreams of the day when she can carve her own path toward music immortality.
One day without warning, Grace leaves for Los Angeles. With the help of Johnny’s ruthless former manager, Frank “Mossy” Mostin (KEVIN POLLAK), she lands a record deal. Mossy sees in Grace a potential superstar and massive pay check. Grace seems prepared to walk away from her Christian faith and music to achieve her long-suppressed fantasy of pop stardom. Will she reject her faith, or rediscover it?
Also starring Michael Welch, Shawnee Smith and Jamie Grace
GRACE UNPLUGGED explores the life of a kid who grows up under the care and protection of her parents and their faith. But when thrust into adulthood she must determine if the faith of her parents is really her own.
