BACKGROUND: “Faith under Fire” starring Toni Braxton is produced by Sony Pictures Television and based on the 2014 book “Prepared for a Purpose: An Inspiring True Story of Faith, Courage and Compassion in Crisis” by Tuff and Alex Tresniowski. The story details the journey of a struggling single mother who convinced a deranged gunman to surrender peaceably — saving hundreds of lives at the risk of her own after he stormed an elementary school in August 2013.
