Bishop Henry Brougham, troubled with funding the building of a new cathedral, prays for divine guidance. His plea is seemingly answered by a suave angel named Dudley. However, Dudley’s mission is not to help construct a cathedral, but to spiritually guide Henry and the people around him. Henry has become obsessed with raising funds, to the detriment of his family life. His relationships with Julia and their young daughter are strained by his focus on the cathedral. But when Dudley spends time cheering up Julia, there is an unexpected development: Dudley finds himself strongly attracted to her and sensing this, Henry becomes jealous and anxious for his unwelcome guest to finish and depart! When his mission is completed, knowing that Julia loves her husband, and that Henry loves Julia, Dudley leaves, promising never to return.
