UMC Drama series “5th Ward” is back for Season 2 that follows long-time Houston resident, Mina (Mýa), who’s been struggling to make ends meet since losing her husband. Now a single mother of two sons, James and older brother Ray Ray, Mina fears for their safety after an argument at a local convenience store ends terribly.


When James is taken away from her following a police encounter, Mina battles with the idealism of remaining on the straight and narrow and the reality of what difficult decisions her circumstances will require her to make.
