Outstanding directorial debut from a talented female filmmaker
7 September 2018 | by AbMiller29See all my reviews

The story line is strong and the script holds the audience in suspense, angst and provides regular dosages of wit to keep us entertained. Refreshing to see new black talent with strong acting skills, especially the duos who portray: Jade, Danny, Carla and Eddie. Great great effort
