Tyler Perry’s first film is a classic tale of a woman scorned, with a notable twist. Helen McCarter (Kimberly Elise) is the wronged wife, summarily dumped by her attorney husband Charles (Steve Harris) after 18 years of marriage. Literally booted out of her Atlanta mansion, Helen goes to live with her grandmother Madea (Tyler Perry), and begins the difficult process of rebuilding her life. Just as Helen has achieved a new sense of self-confidence through steady employment and new romance, Charles suddenly reappears in her life, in dire need of her help. For Helen, it is a chance for revenge - but also a chance for redemption through forgiveness.
