The Characters


A hand opens a worn curtain, letting in the sun. DONTE PHILLIPS, African-American, 30, shoulders rugged and wide from a lifetime of work, rolls his neck. 


A STRIKING YOUNG WOMAN in a robe stands in the middle of the quad. ELIZA WOLFE-BRIAR, 24, a natural beauty, accepts congratulations from passersby.


Above him, the striking face of ALICIA (29), an African-American woman. She kneels over him, holding a bloodied rag.


Donte looks again at the mirror, his WHITE FACE AND BODY staring back, then realizes… Donte scans his now White body, clean of scars. He takes a peek below his waistband – lets out a sigh of relief.
