Raising Izzie: Raising Izzie is the family tale of school teacher Tonya Freeman (Vanessa Williams – TV's Soul Food), and her husband Greg (Rockmond Dunbar – TV's Soul Food) is struggling with their inability to have a child. Meanwhile, 14-year old Gertie (Victoria Elizabeth Staley), Tonya's student, is singlehandedly raising her little sister, Izzie (Kyla Kennedy) after being orphaned due to their mother's death. The two girls are secretly living on their own, attempting to stay under the radar so they can remain together. Both Tonya and Gertie have fallen from faith, but these two "broken" families find renewed devotion by coming together to be whole again. Gifted with an inspired cast and an uplifting message, the film will touch your heart with the healing power of faith and family.

Starring: Rockmond Dunbar, Vanessa Williams, Victoria Elizabeth Staley, Kayla Kennedy, Rodney Perry, Wanda Smith, Ric Reitz.
