Schedule

Sunday, Nov. 13 at 3:00pm

Lucy is an unassuming Catholic schoolgirl — book-smart, quiet, devout. Two weeks before graduation, she discovers that her best friend recently had an abortion. As Lucy struggles with her friend’s decision, the morality problem she’s using as the basis for her valedictory address becomes an obsession. Soon, Lucy finds herself plotting to kill the doctor who performed her best friend’s procedure. Lucy becomes fixated on her plan — and how to cover her tracks — and finds herself traveling down a dark path, away from everything she’s worked for. Will she be stopped? Will she get caught? Will she be redeemed? Both director Jame Mackenzie and lead actress Ana Mackenzie are former St. Louisans.
