Lifetime's back with yet another thriller for us, and this time, you may want to brace yourself. The upcoming movie, 'Wrath: A Seven Deadly Sins Story' sure has a seemingly perfect plot, but there's a catch. Last year, Lifetime premiered the films Lust and Envy, two of the Seven Deadly Sins stories from the Victoria Christopher Murray anthology.  The films were produced for television in a partnership with Bishop TD Jakes.  This year, the network is releasing 'Wrath: A Seven Deadly Sins Story' and 'Greed: A Seven Deadly Sins story'. 

'Wrath: A Seven Deadly Sins Story' revolves around a single lawyer Chastity Jeffries (Michelle Williams) who meets Xavier Collins (Antonio Cupo) and almost instantly feels a soul connection to the man. While Jeffries notices how Collins checks out every possible quality she's looking for in a partner, things seem too good to be true. Is that code for "trouble is just around the corner?"
