Per Amazon’s official logline, the film follows “Ava, a young bank professional who is devastated when her husband Dallas abandons a marriage she is determined to fight for until fate intervenes, revealing Dallas’ wicked deeds that have trashed their marriage, and once upon a time sabotaged Ava’s destiny to be loved by her true soulmate.”

“I’ve tried everything. You have taught me since I was a little girl to be a wife,” Ava tells her parents in the trailer. “But what happens when that’s not enough?”

Good and Hardrict are joined by a cast that includes Joseph Lee Anderson, Shannon Wallace, Taylor Polidore, Richard Lawson and Debbi Morgan. Perry serves as writer-director. He also produces with Good, Angi Bones, Will Areu and Dianne Ashford.

Perry was recently the subject of Gelila Bekele and Armani Ortiz’s documentary “Maxine’s Baby: The Tyler Perry Story,” which also premiered exclusively on Prime Video in November 2023. Perry told Variety that upon watching “Maxine’s Baby” for the first time, he “had to step away from it for a minute to gather my emotions and my feelings because it was so well done, so incredibly thought out and laid out with such exact precision of storytelling.” He already released a feature this year with “Mea Culpa,” a Netflix legal thriller starring Kelly Rowland.
