“Death Saved My Life” Lifetime Premiere Movie Starring Meagan Good, La’myia Good & Chike Okonkwo
The perfect job and successful marketing career. The perfect marriage. The perfect life. At least that is how it appeared on the surface for Jade (played by Meagan Good). Underneath all of the perfect was fear. Fear from her husband, Ed (played by Chiké Okonkwo), who is a controlling, narcissistic man who is physically and psychologically abusive. When Jade decides to leave Ed, he tells her “If I can’t have you, nobody will,” and that threat becomes very real when she discovers he has hired someone to kill her.
When you feel there is no limit you will go to for peace, you will do anything to get it (especially when your life is on the line). After a few encounters with the man hired to kill her, Jade fakes her death to make Ed think the hitman completed the job.
Before faking her death, Jade confesses to her sister, Leigh (played by La’Myia Good), that Ed is trying to have her killed. Leigh, who constantly fears for her sister’s life, tells Jade to go to the police. Even after trying, Jade knew this would be futile due to friendships.
When Jade comes up missing, she blames Ed for her disappearance (especially since Jade’s body cannot be found). Feeling like she could not save her sister, every encounter with Ed leaves her hating him more and more. She threatens him since she knows the truth of the abuse and is aware of the lies he tells people about both her and her sister to the police.
Though Ed believes the hitman killed Jade, he begins to unravel as he feels her presence everywhere. Even when presented with pictures of her body, he continues to wonder if his mind is playing tricks on him. This film is not short of intense moments and will have you on the edge of your seat from the beginning to the end. It is a psychological thriller that would have you in tears; as well as, in fear for the lives of Jade, her daughter, and her sister.
