Cast overview:
Sergeant Weiss


The two black men (Anthony and Michael) are successful in the high tech world of Silicon Valley, and have known each other since childhood. The story takes place over the course of a day, when the couples get together for an afternoon of dining, drinking, and hot tubbing. Later, one of the wives is found dead in the hot tub, setting off a series of events that reveal their inner beliefs. Things turn dark as racism, paranoia, and the mistress come into play. This results in more deaths, until the ultimate realization that your thoughts and actions are more important than the color of your skin. Written by jazzmyne

Good Independent Film
11 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie last year. This was one of the best independent movies I saw last year. I met the director Sacha Parisot at the Dallas Juneteenth Film Fest last year and he's a really cool guy. Debra Wilson from Mad TV is excellent as the urban version of fatal attraction. All of the cast in this ensemble piece are very good and hopefully we'll see much more of them all. This thriller mystery is not only effective for this type of film its smart too in that it raises some serious current social issues on race and gender.I'd say I'd have to rank this easily in my top ten of independent films, certainly the top three over the last year or so. Hats off to Sacha and all the cast and crew for this masterpiece.
