Based on actual events about the harsh realities of teenagers living life in a group home (where over 100,000 American juveniles live each year). The story: Roy (Josh Keaton), a new kid and artist from the suburbs is tested by Daryl (Carl Gilliard), the group home leader and his military style rules, a forbidden romance with Laura (Chloe Taylor), his streetwise and reactionary roommate (Danny Arroyo), and his own troubled past as he tries to survive until ‘graduation day’. In the end, only his art can save his dreams of love, hope and freedom.
In trouble with the local authorities, Mabel Simmons, notoriously known as Madea, is on the run from the law. With no place to turn, she moves in with her friend Bam who is recovering from surgery. Unbeknownst to Bam however, Madea is only using the “concerned friend” gag as a way to hide out from the police.
Madea’s neighborhood takes a turn for the worse when a foster mother moves in with her unruly kids. Suspicious activity leads Madea to take justice into her own hands. With Aunt Bam by her side, Madea uses her unique wit and wisdom for unforgettable results.
