Flash player is needed to view this video

Soul Baby is a sensual, spirit filled and educational journey into the lives of a group of upwardly mobile African American couples. After years of being married, Lloyd and Laney Dennison are having a lack of trust and communication issues. Lloyd steps up and showers his beautiful wife with gifts, including the titillating novel Soul Baby. It is in the novel where Laney reads and becomes in tune with her own marriage. Each couple is struggling with their individual outlooks on companionship while coming to terms with their social identities.

They reach out and seek help from a wise but unorthodox therapist, Valeria Winters. Each of the couples come to grips with hidden truths and insecurities. McCoy, Austin, Jonathan and Cameron have one thing in common, their jobs keep them around beautiful women all day. Nadine, Chantal, Darcey and Gizelle have formed a sisterhood bond, but one of them will break the number one rule of sisterhood. The stories are intertwined beautifully with wisdom, joy, excitement and deception. We'll learn from the therapist hands on evaluation about finding the perfect soulmate, as well as the wisdom of the older relatives about life lessons and relationships.
