Summary
When three-year-old Sonny witnessed his father's brutal murder, he didn't know a curse haunting the men in his family was to blame. But his grandmother, Constance Jackson, did. For 20 years, Constance clung to her abusive marriage and church hoping that she could save her son. But hope and prayers were not enough, and her son died an unnatural death just like four generations of Jackson men before him. Now, she's stuck raising her grandson -- Sonny. As time goes on, Constance sees Sonny as a chance to make things right with her past. But as Sonny approached manhood, Constance recognizes a change in him. And her gut says the shadow of the curse is lurking and will strike again soon. She he fights to keep Sonny from his father's fate. But a grandmother's gumption and prayers may not be enough to save Sonny's soul
