Description: "Jada" is the story of a young woman whose life is thrown into a spin when her husband is killed in a questionable car accident. Her once prosperous middle-class lifestyle comes crashing down when the insurance company calls the accident a suicide and doesn't pay on the policy.Jada and her two teenage children, Jasmine and Jamal become homeless living in their car until the pastor of a local church, Rev. Terrence Mayweather comes to their aid. The family finds shelter in the Eastern Ave. housing projects. Unfortunately, Jamal becomes entangled in the neighborhood gang. Throughout the ordeal, Jada's faith in God keeps the family together. An unlikely savior in the person of Simon Williams keeps the plot interesting. Simon was just released from prison on the strong recommendation of Rev. Mayweather. Simon is introduced as a mentor to Jamal in an attempt to steer him away from the gang, but tensions are high between Simon and the head of the gang, Jason Smith a/k/a "Thunder". With a "keep you guessing ending", we observe that everything works out when you have faith in God.
