Based on the comic book by Dennie Liu, Raising Dion follows the life of Nicole (Alisha Wainwright), who's single mother life just got a whole lot more complicated as she discovers that her son, Dion (Ja'Siah Young) possesses some supernatural abilities that the U.S. government is looking to exploit for their own purposes. The character was husband to Nicole (Wainwright) and father to a young son, Dion (Young), before he apparently died in a storm. Motherhood gets particularly complicated when Dion starts manifesting mysterious abilities.

Mark's best friend, Pat (Jason Ritter), helps her keep Dion's gifts a secret and him safe from those out to exploit him while figuring out the origin of his abilities.
