For The Love Of Lockwood
Jealousy engulfs Marla Peters (Marcille) just as she is set to marry her fiancé Lockwood Masters (Blakemore) driving him to call off the wedding. Lockwood ultimately forgives Marla and with a little assistance from Madame Mabry (Whitfield) promises to love her... to death.
Ronald (Lennix) is caught in a love triangle between his new love Alexa (Rowell) and his live-in girlfriend Jessica (Sherwood). After coming home to find Jessica and friends including Monique (Tran) performing a strange ritual, he breaks the relationship off. As a peace offering, Jessica brings an ornately-decorated mirror that changes his life forever.
