About Twist of Faith Jacob Fisher ('David Julian Hirsh'), an Orthodox Jewish Cantor and amateur songwriter who resides in Brooklyn, New York, witnesses the senseless murder of his wife and three children. Catatonic, Jacob walks out on his Jewish mourning ritual, leaving behind his Jewish garments, wallet and keys. Abandoning his identity, he wanders aimlessly, hoping somehow to understand his tragedy. Fortuitously, he lands in Brent, Alabama (population 2,500), where he is embraced by Nina (Toni Braxton), a single mother and the lead singer of a small gospel choir (an unlikely finalist in the competition to determine the best gospel choir in Alabama), her Uncle Moe (Mykelti Williamson) and their gospel community who help his return to life while music brings Nina and Jacob together as they try to make sense of his past and their possible future.

Jacob's Ladder
11 February 2013 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

In small-town Brent, Alabama, single singer-teacher Toni Braxton (as Nina Yarber) devotes time to her young son and the church, where she sings gospel music. Friends attempt to play matchmaker, but Ms. Braxton resists. Meanwhile, in big-city Brooklyn, New York, devout Jewish musician David Julian Hirsh (as Jacob Fisher) witnesses a horrific bus massacre. After the tragedy, Mr. Hirsh moves to Alabama and meets Braxton. At first, she is unimpressed with his shabby, homeless appearance...

Hirsh is secretive about his background. He begins working as a handyman for Braxton and the church. He also loves music, just like Braxton. Hirsh teaches Braxton's son Nathaniel James Potvin (as Asher "Ash" Jones) to play basketball and a father-son relationship develops. Hmmm... Braxton's rabbit-hunting uncle Mykelti Williamson (as Moe) approves. You'll have to see if Braxton and Hirsh hook up, and how his past threatens the possibility. "Twist of Faith" is a mostly Christian TV-movie, with good music.

***** Twist of Faith (2/9/13) Paul A. Kaufman ~ Toni Braxton, David Julian Hirsh, Mykelti Williamson, Nathaniel J. Potvin
