Editorial Reviews

Jada is the faith based story of a woman whose life becomes chaotic when her husband is killed in a questionable car accident. Her once-comfortable middle-class lifestyle comes crashing down when an insurance company labels the accident a suicide and refuses to pay her benefits as the survivor.
As a result, Jada (Sienna Goines) and her two teenage children, Jasmine and Jamal, become homeless and have to live in their car until the pastor of a local church, the Rev. Terrence Mayweather (Clifton Powell), comes to their aid. The family finds shelter in a low-income housing project, but Jamal becomes entangled in the neighborhood gang. Throughout the ordeal, Jada's unwavering faith in God keeps the family together. An unlikely savior arrives in the person of Simon Williams (Rockmond Dunbar), who has been released from prison on the Reverend Mayweather's strong recommendation. Simon becomes 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 and Jamal is faced with a life changing decision.  Will he choose the streets or will he choose God?

It's your average story about a family that loses everything after the father is killed. The family regroups and Jada has to deal with getting off of welfare and keeping her son away from the local street gang. She turns to the church for and help and a former prison inmate for support.

My main issue with the film was that it was EDITED. The N word and profanity were bleeped out. You know something was said when the sound just drops. I would prefer the film not do that or just not include those questionable words in the first place.

Otherwise than that the film was fine.

This movie really did inspired me, It was based on life, and when you going through something Look to the hills from whence all of your help come from and that is from God himself. The mother never lost her faith, the son did for a minute bit you brought someone in that have been there to help him, and that was very good indeed " FAITH" kept this family together, and I really loved how this mother went from been on welfare to getting a job in a law firm, Jada wanted better for herself and her kids, and she found love at the same time. This is a Inspiration play, I knew I could not go wrong with Clifton Powell in it, all I can say about this movie it was GREAT and who ever do not have it, need to buy it, I promise you, you will not regret it.

Jada was a bit mediocre. A story about a woman who took control of a bad situation, and though she almost lost one of her children to the street, she turned it around and there was a very happy mediocre ending.
