Writer Statement

This screenplay has a message of social conscience. It brings forth crime, scandal, stereotyping, corrupt authoritarianism, privilege and oppression. It entails everything relevant in today’s social issues appealing to the interest of society’s questions and concerns. One persons bad experience with an individual shouldn’t be labeled as a representative for an entire group of people. This film takes the inverse concept approach to show conscience for one another.
