But things begin to change when a handyman (Adam Rodriguez) decides to rent a room in her basement. Now nothing will ever be the same as April finds love, faith, family – and herself – in this inspirational romantic comedy featuring performances by Mary J. Blige, Gladys Knight and Marvin L. Winans.
