“Secrets & Lies”
(Multicultural, multi-sexual, romantic, drama)
Warning: Adult language, sexual situations.
“Sometimes a need for keeping secrets…
Can be just as intriguing as a reason for telling lies…”
“Secrets & Lies” is a provocative, uncensored, character-driven, emotional journey into the private lives of four central characters and their desperate struggles to survive in the shadows of life-altering secrets and lies. At the heart of the story is a beautiful, different kind of woman with a connection to everyone, who questions her personal worth as she fights to keep the life and love she has always wanted. Even the elements of true confessions get lost in translation as the details of who these people really are brings them together in a surprising, yet necessary finale that will change their lives forever…
It’s an early spring night in present-day Waxahachie, Texas, just thirty miles south of Dallas. Traditional banners for the annual “Crape Myrtle Festival,” though still weeks away, are already hanging across all major thoroughfares. A wide view of the DOWNTOWN SQUARE showcases the famous COUNTY COURTHOUSE, illuminated by bright flood lights in honor of its hundred-plus years old majestic centerpiece. The square itself is a mass of modern businesses such as a museum, antique shops, lawyer’s offices, and more, including a night club filled to capacity with a mixture of young people with LOUD POP music spewing out into the night.
On the northwest side of town, inside a three-story, VICTORIAN style apartment complex called “MAGNOLIA PARK,” KENNEDY “KENNY” JORDAN, (28, talk, dark hair, blue eyes), in the arc of passion with CAMILLA VARGAS, (25, pretty and petite), suddenly stops, sits up on the side of the bed and contemplates the situation. In frustration, he pulls the condom from his flaccid sex and crushes it to his palm. He takes a deep breath and then hangs his head for a moment before he dares himself to speak.
Riddled with guilt and shame for the wrong he knows he is about do is just as defining as pretending to be the type of man that everyone else in his life thinks he should be…
Kennedy “Kenny” Jordan is an all American jock turned bank executive with a difficult past and a challenging future that keeps him in the balance between having what he wants versus what others expect of him. The truth for him is a secret but for the most part his secret is built on lies.
Camilla Vargas is a stunning, but somewhat naïve, ambitious young Latin woman with big dreams of success that she plans to obtain by any means possible. But in her effort to have it all, a major slip in judgment has her standing at the crossroads of life with a decision to make that could cost her beyond her dreams.
Ulanda Jefferson (25) is a hip, sexy, outspoken Black American fashionista with a fiery attitude. Armored with sharp-wit and an uncensored tongue, she is more than just a force to be reckoned with. What she knows about everyone else doesn’t hold a candle to what they don’t know about her, and if she has her way about it, the truth would never be known.
Bren Searcy (38) is a grown-up lost in transition, (literally from male to female). There is almost nothing she wouldn’t bear to hang onto the happiness she has finally found, but even an unexpected truth could bring her whole world tumbling down.
