Michael Jai White and Lynn Whitfield star in Somebody’s Child – a drama which aired on GMC last summer.

Whitfield and White play a terminally ill mother and her son, who let an ex-con into their lives. Byron Minns (as the ex-con), Nadine Ellis and Clifton Powell round out the cast.

The script, penned by Siddeeqah Powell, was a finalist in the 2011 American Black Film Festival’s GMC Faith and Family Screenplay Competition.

Production took place in Wilmington, NC, with Gary Wheeler directing.
