Down in the Delta

(1998)

Loretta (Alfre Woodard) lives with her mother and two children, but is headed down a destructive path as she succumbs to the drug and alcohol-ridden streets of her neighborhood. In efforts to pull her daughter and grandchildren (Mpho Koaho and Kulani Hassen) out of harm's way, Loretta's mother Rosa Lynn (Mary Alice) pawns her most valuable and prized family heirloom and moves the family back to their ancestral home down in the Mississippi delta.
