In 50 words or less, what's your film about?
Renee Johnson, a mother living in South Central LA, must make a difficult decision when she's late for her job interview.
What inspired you to make this film?
For many, our protagonist's only crime was being black, poor, and female. For others, regardless of her situation, her decision was reprehensible. Still, it is not cut and dry. While the inspiration for the story found help, I want to follow the normal trajectory. Where most parents are on their own.
