Belle Mccain (Teyonah Parris) tries to catch up with an old friend, Jeremy Spencer (Brian J. White) in our exclusive clip from Where Children Play. This drama is now available on DVD and VOD from RLJ Entertainment. While Jeremy's "fancy life" seemingly turned out just fine, things haven't been going so well for Belle, who jokes that she manages Queen Latifah before revealing that she's barely scraping by. She also reveals that she's been ordered to come back home to Compton to look after her father.
Belle is a beautiful young woman who never found a bright future because she was too busy running away from a heartbreaking past. But news of her mother passing away brings Belle back home to her family and the painful memories she tried to leave behind. Only when she finds the strength to confront her family's shameful history, does Belle learn that forgiveness has the power to heal the scars of a broken childhood and unlock her heart to the possibility of love.
