LOVERS is a fictional short film which could just as well be fact. It is a dramatic love story and a mystery set in the City of Angels (Los Angeles). Will a serial killer strike again? Will law enforcement arrest the killer in time? Will love be the bond that protects a possible victim? Is race relevant in the way crimes are solved? All these questions will be addressed during scenes filled with beauty, intrigue, and love. Music meets fashion meets drama.
LOVERS is an artistic film that is socially relevant and in tune with America. Do victims of color receive the same efforts from police? Does profiling work? Do we the viewer have a racial bias? LOVERS is a story that broadens the understanding of the human condition and inspires the viewer to create dialogue about racism and profiling in communities around the world. Are we so conditioned as a society that we have an innate fear of people because of the shade of their skin?
