In the early 20th Century, devout Reverend Charles Fortesque returns to England from his missionary work in Africa and, despite plans to marry his childhood sweetheart, receives a most unusual assignment: minister to the local prostitutes, located in the worst area of town. A wealthy married patron offers to help improve his station, on the condition that he also minister to her, in the bedroom!
