In his film debut, Burt Reynolds vies with George Hamilton for the love of one heavenly woman. In the American South, evangelist Paul Strand (Hamilton) meets a beautiful, young mute named Jenny, affectionately known as Angel Baby. When Paul prays for her, Jenny's voice miraculously returns ... and the two fall in love, sparking jealousy in Paul's older wife and Jenny's predatory lover (Reynolds). With Paul and Sarah quarreling furiously, Jenny leaves as a traveling evangelist and starts to believe that she possesses divine healing powers. But does she...?
