Storyline

Catherine; a beautiful black woman from Canada lands in LA with dreams of 'making her mark', but first she wants to get an apartment in a good neighbourhood. Her independence and naiveté propel her, when doors shut and apartments become 'suddenly unavailable' when she shows up. On this sunny, average day, Catherine unwittingly steps into the realm of Viola Ceckny; a tragic figure, having spent years of face time with the television. Her only communication with the outside world; her local nightly news. Viola, hair trigger amped and imprisoned by a desperate siege mentality finally takes control when, on this day, her greatest fear becomes reality. Viola's reality, snatches Catherine into a harrowing world that exposes her to the depths of racial ignorance and taps her primal instinct to survive. Written by makko
