About Shed: Imagine, in a rural Southern town, a Black mother holds her daughter’s racist rapist captive. A Time to Kill meets 12 Angry Men This powerful parable of what could come if change never comes takes place in a small Southern town. Henrietta Nolan’s daughter, Kamalise, is raped by John Joseph Bailey. The Baileys are a prominent, white supremacy family. They basically own the town and therefore, are impervious to the law. The assault on Kamalise unearths buried memories of Henrietta’s own attack, coincidentally, by a member of the same family. Unable to live with this recurring nightmare, Henrietta is determined to put an end to the abuse the Baileys wield in this town. Employing a variety of tactics, Henrietta is hell-bent on exacting a confession from John Bailey. While Henrietta confronts John Bailey, her children explore the systemic racism and injustices in America. Through family stories, American history, and shared experiences, this suspense drama voices the unsaid, challenges the promise of America, and rips through the heart of one’s soul.
