A gift given in secret soothes anger, and a bribe concealed in the cloak pacifies great wrath

Proverbs 21:14

CLARISSA'S GIFT

Our story is born of the verse Proverbs 21:14. We show how anger can be soothed when God’s word (the gift) given in a manner in which it can be heard and understood (the secret) can pacify even the most adverse of circumstances (a bribe concealed in the cloak pacifies great wrath).

 

This short film is a touching and powerful story dealing with the subject of bullying. It is directed and co-produced by the legendary, award-winning Obba Babatundé (IMDB.com).  It stars several notable luminaries, Emmy winner Vincent Irizarry (Dr. David Hayward-All My Children), Reatha Grey (Betty White's Off Their Rockers), Melissa Biggs (Baywatch), Peter Kwong (Big Trouble in Little China, The Golden Child), Stoney Jackson (Streets of Fire, 227, Everybody Hates Chris), Aloma Wright (Scrubs, The Brothers, Days of Our Lives), Nay Nay Kirby (Wishes, Annie Clause is Coming to Town), Noah Dahl (Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Henry Poole is Here) and Millena Gay (All My Children, General Hospital, The Young and The Restless).
