Toni Braxton will star in a Lifetime movie alongside her son Diezel called “Twist of Faith.” Mykelti Williamson, David Julian Hirsh will also be in the movie. This is a movie that will kick off the Black History Month movies for Lifetime. “Twist of Fate” will premiere on Saturday, February 9, at 8pm ET/PT.
Jacob Fisher (Hirsh), an Orthodox Jewish Cantor and amateur songwriter who resides in Brooklyn, New York, 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 (an unlikely finalist in the competition to determine the best gospel choir in Alabama), her Uncle Moe (Williamson) and their gospel community who help his return to life while music brings Nina and Jacob together as they try to make sense of his past and their possible future.
