Development Pitch

I picture the story would start and look like in the movie Cadillac Records (old days) while Malik is young getting adjusted to women in Mississippi. As he gets older and moves to Chicago to start a new life, he becomes an attractive smooth guy who is used to having plenty of women until finally falling in love with a married woman and pays the ultimate price for it.
