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?


At the primary location (The Williams family home), in the 9th ward of New Orleans, 3 days before production began the Producers, DP, and Set Dec team were prepping the location when two men in cars had an altercation out front the house and fired 10 shots each at one another. Multiple bullets hit the house, three of which fired through a window, one of which hit the gas line of the house. The path of the bullets entering the house just narrowly missed multiple members of the production team. They considered shutting down the production entirely for obvious reasons but ultimately decided this was more of a reason that the film had to be made. See more »
