Plot Synopsis

Based on the book by ReShonda Tate Billingsley. Beautiful, high-powered attorney Tia Jiles, who has just married the man of her dreams, successful magazine executive Lance Kingston. She is also on the brink of launching a major political campaign when a pattern of erratic behavior emerges. Lance soon discovers that his new wife and her family, especially her mother have known since Tia was seventeen that she has been struggling with bi-polar and schizoaffective disorder both privately and publicly. Determined to end the cycle of secrecy, Lance, along with his sister, set out to convince Tia to resume her medication and enter treatment. "The Secret She Kept" is an exploration of the impact of mental illness on families, which is far too often closeted in the African American community and provides a thought-provoking and inspirational story which addresses how far to go to save a loved one when they've kept a dangerous secret for years.
