Sam Childers is a drug dealing biker whose main method of getting what he wants is violence. His life mirrors that of a 'Hells Angels' member and he admits that he isn't proud of his actions, even breaking down in front of his Christian wife, Lynn. In response to his cries for help, Lynn takes Sam to church, where he suddenly feels uplifted again. His preacher tells him about families in Sudan that need urgent care and Sam volunteers to travel there.
Leaving his family behind, he heads to Africa, where soon after his arrival he meets freedom fighters. He is warned by them and others that Sudan is a war zone, with a high risk of death. Regardless, Sam enters Sudan and discovers something chilling: thousands of children - many of them orphans - have been taken hostage and are being used as soldiers and sex slaves. Disgusted by this, Sam takes it upon himself to become a crusader and he sets out to free the helpless Sudanese children.
