A synopsis of a screenplay by David Patrick Wilson
At first glance, this town looks like Anywhere, USA. Dawn, all is silent. An alarm clock sounds. In an instant, the street is teeming with activity. The day is on.
This is the story of Timothy James ("TJ") Williams, a ‘good’ cop rushing toward retirement, his family, friends and the town in which they live and work. He and his partner of over 10 years have helped keep the community safe and seemingly free from the corruption that plagues so many ‘small town’ communities. There is nothing unusual about the Williams’. They are simply another working class family with All-American values. Today should be just another typical day ‘on the job’.
TJ and Angel head to court to try and keep another teen-aged 'perp' from getting lost walking their streets. Yet, by the end of the day, TJ's life and the lives of all of those close to him will be forever changed.
He will be labeled a 'murderer', unwelcome and unwanted in his own home and community. On this day TJ will make a decision that alters the course of his life and force him to confront many of the decisions he's made in the past. He will unthinkingly gun down his son's best friend, a promising young black man, the pride of his community and practically a second son to the devastated detective. After that, his life will unravel like a coverless baseball rolling downhill, another American dream turned nightmare.
Broken and lost, in unbearable pain, begging forgiveness, his prayers are answered. This is a tale of the fallen and the redeemed. A lifetime of bad choices cannot be rectified in a single day. But, as this detective discovers, finding the right place to turn around is the first step on the road less traveled.
