White Sunday weekend has arrived at West Harbourview Church. The church is bustling in preparation and its youth group is in full-flight as they rehearse for Sunday’s festivities.

Amidst the harmonies, Pule struggles with the reality that he will soon be leaving this, his future sealed as a pastor in training at a prestigious Bible College in Samoa.

But before he leaves, he will reveal his truth.
