Joining the star cast is Tichina Arnold, formerly of “Everybody Hates Chris”; Kimberly Elise; Mekhi Phifer; and Anika Noni Rose, best known for her role in Dreamgirls.
“A Day Late and a Dollar Short” tells the story of a sickly mother (played by Whoopi Goldberg) who tries to help her dysfunctional family through life’s ups and downs. Teen pregnancy, sibling rivalry and drug addiction are some of the issues the mother must overcome to bring her family together as they all explore the importance of family and forgiveness.
