Raising Jesse is a story about two people who have moved far away from a one time relationship. The only remnant of that relationship is a small boy who has been estranged from his father and raised by a struggling mother. When Jesse is old enough to interact with his distant father, a new relationship unfolds. The way in which that relationship affects the emotional and spiritual lives of all of the players in Jesse's drama is a story of how a young man makes his way toward maturity. His journey impacts all of those around him and features the acquisition of love that he had not known. Raising Jesse examines a prevalent problem in today's culture and the way that God enabled three people cope with it.
