“This is an All American feel good movie. Where love has no color and people help one another. This is what makes America as wonderful as she is.” RitaAnn~
14-year old Gertie (Victoria Elizabeth Staley) is singlehandedly raising her little sister, Izzie (Kyla Kenedy). Orphaned after their mother’s death, the two girls are secretly living on their own, attempting to stay under the radar so they can remain together. Meanwhile Gertie’s new teacher, Mrs. Freeman (Vanessa Williams), and her husband (Rockmond Dunbar) struggle with their inability to have a child. Both Gertie and Mrs. Freeman have fallen from faith, but can these two “broken” families find renewed devotion by coming together? Gifted with an inspired cast and an uplifting message, RAISING IZZIE will touch your heart with the healing power of faith and family!
