LOS ANGELES, CA – Famed R&B singer and actress Jill Scott (The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency) is set to headline the Lifetime Movie Network Original Movie Sins of the Mother, a touching story about the harsh realities of love, forgiveness and the closest of bonds between mother and daughter. Based on author Carleen Brice’s moving novel, Orange Mint and Honey, the film features Scott as reformed alcoholic Nona, Nicole Beharie (American Violet) as her daughter Shay and Mimi Rogers (The Door in the Floor) as Nona’s sponsor Lois.

 

‘Sins of the Mother’ will premiere Sunday, February 21, 2010, at 8pm ET/5pm PT, on Lifetime Movie Network, Lifetime’s sister network and the second highest rated women’s channel.

Graduate student Shay Hunter (Beharie) reaches a crossroad in her life when she finds herself broke, burned out and unable to cope with the stress of school. With nowhere else to go, she embarks on a journey home to Tacoma, Washington, to face her abusive, alcoholic, estranged mother, Nona (Scott).

 

When she returns home, Shay finds Nona living life as a recovered alcoholic, with a new daughter and completely transformed.

 

Thrown by her mother’s new path, Shay must now accept Nona’s changes and influences, including her sponsor Lois (Rogers) — all forcing Shay to move past her pent-up anger and awaken her own relationships.
