It will be one of 3 movies headlining Lifetime's Black History Month celebration - Twist of Faith, starring Toni BraxtonMykelti Williamson and David Julian Hirsh.

It's changed titles twice - first it was called A Moment In Time, and then it became A Narrow Bridge, and finally settled on Twist of Faith.

Synopsis:

Jacob Fisher (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 (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 (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.

Braxton's 9-year-old son Diezel plays her son in the movie as well, which will premiere on Saturday, February 9, at 8pm ET/PT.

Lifetime has released the tele-pic's very first trailer, which is embedded below, along with a bunch of pics from the romantic drama:
