Orleans Street Branch, Meeting Room 1303 Orleans Street Baltimore, MD 21231

A self-styled therapist gets more than he bargained for when he endeavors to help a troubled man shaken by a tragic loss.

Thomas Carter (Anthony Mackie) is a popular self-help author whose unique blend of spirituality and positivity has gained him a loyal fan-base. One of those fans is disturbed New Orleans construction contractor Angel Sanchez (Forest Whitaker), whose deep-rooted anguish over the death of his mother has slowly spiraled into an all-consuming mental illness. Sanchez has grown convinced that Carter is his only hope for conquering the trauma of his past, but the prolific author repeatedly rejects his pleas for a private consultation until his brother Ben (Mike Epps) gets into a major financial bind.
