Levity is a 2003 movie written and directed by Ed Solomon.
Manual Jordan, a man who served 22 years for killing a teenager during an attempted robbery, is granted parole from a life sentence.
After spending his time staring at a clipping of Abner Easley, the boy he killed, he returns to the city he used to live in to find redemption.
He ends up living at a community house which is ran by Miles Evans, a preacher. He offers Manual work so he can pay for the room, and Manual places Abner's photo in his room to remind himself.
While staying at the community house, he helps and becomes friends with Sofia Mellinger, a young woman with no adult figure in her life. Mellinger constantly requires Manual's help.
Manual also encounters Adele Easley, the elder of sister of Abner. She doesn't recognise Manual and in his pursuit for forgiveness, he forms a friendship with her, and their relationship begins to develop.
Manual's chance for redemption comes when Adele's rebellious teenage son becomes involved in violence.
Manual tries to befriend him and steer him in the right direction, ever mindful of the past.
