Good made for TV film
23 March 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a good made for tv film about a real life African American priest (played by Louise Gosset, Jr.)that marches to his own toon. He has a tendency to drive the archbishop of his diocese (played by the late Carroll O'Connor). He really drives the bishop up the wall when he adopts an orphaned teenager ("The Cosby Shows's" Malcolm-Jamal Warner). He does this because he wants to get orphans off the street (many wind up in gangs) and cannot get people in his parish to do it until he does it. His biggest challenge is to keep his adopted son out of the gangs. This is a worthwhile movie to watch.
