Development Pitch

In this crime mystery thriller, Grace Light, an apparently frail middle aged black woman shows herself to be totally badass, when she decides to investigate privately her brother's unnatural death. Located in scenic views, the story addresses the timely and timeless theme of fighting racism, through this woman's quest for justice, with the help of her ex husband, an ex-cop, now P.I. The sense of minority is depicted by the total absence of diversity in Sordale, the deserted little town, in Washington state, where the tragic events occurred. Soon, Grace and Simon learn that not only Jim, but a long list of murders took place there, cloaked as fake suicides, car crashes or sudden heart attacks. And now the mysterious serial killer is after them and their daughter, a 18 y-o trans. The suspenseful ending leads from a spectacular chase on deserted roads and a long battle for survival to a surprising climax, with a powerful twist.
