TV Festival 1st Scene: SHADOWS, by Michael Angel Johnson

SHADOWS begins with Reverend Josie Strickland (late 40s, African-American) entering her office at St. Thomas Church and finding her mother, Violet Audrey, (60), standing over a dead body and holding the bloody murder weapon. Through a series of flashbacks, it’s revealed that Diana (21) , the granddaughter of Violet, has been receiving calls from a man warning her of a dangerous outcome for her grandmother (Violet) because of a situation that goes back years when Violet was an investigative reporter in Paris and had dealings with the C.I.A. Once the murder is committed, Diana finds herself at odds and attracted to the Detective (Troy Andrews) assigned to the case, forcing Diana to face a new reality about herself and in relation to her grandmother, mother, and her role in the world.
