Product Description:

Both inspiring and heartbreaking, this film based on a true story chronicles the life of an African-American woman named Lena Baker (Tichina Arnold). Lena was born at the turn of the 20th century to a life of hardship: as a child, she picked cotton with her mother (Beverly Todd), and as an adult, she works as a prostitute. Just as she is about to escape the difficult life for a better one, she is arrested and sent to prison for almost a year. After time passes, Lena quits drinking and happily raises her children. But a struggle with a violent white man (Peter Coyote) lands Lena back in prison when he is accidentally killed. HOPE & REDEMPTION: THE LENA BAKER STORY recounts the life of a woman whom few have heard of but none can forget after seeing this film.
