Back Raising Helen

Movie Synopsis

Helen works all day and dances the night away in her carefree life working at a trendy modeling agency. When her sister and brother-in-law are tragically killed in an automobile accident, Helen discovers that she has been chosen to be the children's guardian. The sudden responsibility, simmering sibling rivalry with her other "super mom" sister, and newfound attraction to a local pastor causes Helen to rethink her priorities. Should she go back to her party girl life, or finally grow up?
