Storyline

Upon his return from serving a eight-year sentence in prison, reformed gang leader, S. Lance Ingram, struggles to adapt to a changed Harlem. Unable to use the technological skills he acquired in jail, Lance is forced to accept a position delivering meals for a local food bank. It is here that he befriends Ms. Maddy, 75, a past beauty with a irreverent and hardened shell to whom he delivers dinners. Through her, Lance finds hope, relearning the joys of life and living despite the outwardly bedeviled society in which they find themselves.

The struggle of the man, not the race
4 December 2015 | by ladymagyverSee all my reviews

This film introduces the struggles of men released today (2015) from prison, while showing the humor and compassion these men possess. It does communicate the hard choices some men are willing to make that labels them as unable to be rehabilitated, from society. The struggle of the man from the streets, not the race, this movie does a great job presenting the issue to the viewer. Most times we understand the phrase; "Scared Straight" as a direct way to change a persons self destructive behavior. This movie; "Chapter & Verse" puts this term on its head, when a man is willing to make the hard choices. After viewing the movie come back and reread this review.
