February is Heart awareness month and also has Valentine's Day.
Lifetime network debuts a new film that is all heart as it explores an inter-faith love story about a Christian single mother and a NYC Orthodox Jew whose mutual love of music and singing draws them together
Lifetime will premiere the Original Movie Twist of Faith, starring Toni Braxton, (“Braxton Family Values”), Mykelti Williamson (“Forrest Gump”) and David Julian Hirsh (“Weeds”) on Saturday, February 9 at 8:00pm ET/PT.
In Twist of Faith, the fictional, cross-cultural, music infused love story tells the tale of Jacob Fisher (Hirsh), an Orthodox Jewish Cantor and amateur songwriter from Brooklyn, New York, who witnesses the senseless murder of his wife and three children.
Catatonic, Jacob walks out on his Jewish mourning ritual, leaving behind his Jewish garments, wallet and keys. Abandoning his identity, he wanders aimlessly, hoping somehow to understand his tragedy.
Fortuitously, he lands in Brent, Alabama (population 2,500), where he is embraced by Nina (Braxton), a single mother and the lead singer of a small gospel choir, her Uncle Moe (Williamson) and their gospel community who help him re-examine his life. While music brings Nina and Jacob together, they try to make sense of his past and their possible future.
