Explore the power of faith and redemption.
Darrell Davis was a child star with promise, on route to a record deal and bright future. But an obsessive affair with firearms leads Darrell to spend most of his adult life in prison, where he learned the word of Allah, changing his lifestyle and identity. Now, at 55, he is known as Sadiq, and his transition back into society is fraught with its own trials for a man who’s spent most of his life behind bars. As he moves into a faith-based re-entry home in his old Chicago neighborhood and becomes a mentor to help other ex-offenders become community leaders, the reality of his new world is just the beginning. The Honest Struggle brims with charisma and inspiration, rooting for Sadiq to overcome the obstacles in his path and prove the power of redemption. - Sandy Wolf
