She turns to an up-and-coming lawyer who files suit against the Archdiocese of New Orleans for sex discrimination without justifiable cause. As the trial unfolds, an extremist threatens to kill the woman if she doesn’t back off.
Producers are Theta Catalon of T-Cat Films and Karlas Powell. Brown is executive producing.
Duke’s directing credits include “Dark Girls”, “Hoodlums”, “Sister Act 2”, “Deep Cover” and “A Rage in Harlem.” He’s represented by Pantheon and Priluck Company.
