In a moment of inspired desperation, she fills out a profile on the dating website ChristianMingle.com hoping to find Mr. Right.

However, Gwyneth’s attempts at impressing her dream guy end in disaster when he calls her out on her “faux faith.”  In an honest realization, she sees her superficial life for what it really is, and she’s driven to create a personal relationship with God.
