Aurora Williams is a 17-year-old girl living with her parents in the New Orleans neighborhood known locally as the 9th Ward. A talented young pianist, Aurora is on the verge of leaving for college to study music when she discovers her cousin Tyrell is responsible for a heinous high-profile murder. Soon, Aurora faces a dire conundrum - turning Tyrell in is obviously the proper thing to do, but societal conventions and family loyalties complicate an already tense situation... Nobody wants to be branded "a snitch" in the tight-knit community of the 9th Ward. With a large reward at stake and the police closing in on Tyrell, Aurora must decide if she is willing to risk the safety of her family in order to do what is right.

Did You Know?


A QUIET STORM marks the acting debut of star Morgan Glover (Aurora Williams). Writer/Director Jason Affolder discovered her at NOCCA, a school for the arts in New Orleans, originally intending to use her solely as a hand double for piano performances. The producers had begun casting months earlier and already narrowed their options down to a handful of potential actresses, but Morgan was given the opportunity to audition for the lead role as well. It was soon clear that she was the Aurora they were searching for, and she was offered the part. See more »

9 March 2019 | by ninjahaley33See all my reviews

Great performances by the cast itself from the main to the minor roles great acting from across the board

It's different from your average indie story telling films being a local from New Orleans I loved seeing New Orleans told from the ins and out not just for the what city's known for

I really hope this movie gets its justice it deserve all the major recognition from every platforms in entertainment
