Rachel Whitaker has been given a good Christian upbringing by her loving parents (her father is a minister). However, after she leaves for her freshman year of college, she begins to be influenced by her biology Professor Kaman whose charisma and light-hearted approach make him popular with the students. He teaches that complex life forms evolved from simpler life forms and that the Biblical theory of creation is not a considerable alternative. Rachel's father Stephen is concerned by the change in his daughter's personality and beliefs. He confronts the arrogant professor and finds himself challenged to a debate much to the embarrassment of his daughter. As he prepares, Stephen is approached by a sympathetic student who tells him to go see a former professor at the university named Portland who was fired years before at Kaman's behest for teaching Biblical theory to his students. Portland initially rebuffs efforts to "get him back in the game". On the night of the debate, Kaman seems to be swaying the audience when Portland suddenly appears and confronts his old nemesis at the movie's conclusion.
