About this submission

A human rights attorney is asked to defend her husband's Saudi mistress, to prevent her deportation and thus her execution. This moral dilemma unfolds at her best friend's Christmas holiday dinner that she unexpectedly shows up to.

This short was developed from a pilot concept. Two professional women are called upon to question everything that they have valued. Will their marriages and their careers survive the decision they ultimately have to make. Inevitably they cross the line of law and they find lawlessness delicious.
