As Halloween approaches in an anonymous city, Black American architect Isaiah Foster is caught between two worlds: one constituted by his profound relationship with his young daughter Maya and another by the guilt he feels for designing a prison. When Isaiah’s guilty conscience manifests somatically as a severe ocular irritation, a suspenseful chain of events is unleashed and Isaiah’s guilt forces him to confront the traumatic truth of what he’s done by designing a prison. Turning against the lucrative project, Isaiah must fend off the private prison corporation executive who will stop at nothing to ensure the construction of Isaiah’s design: he must fight for the life of his daughter, for his sight, for his conscience. In this collision of worlds unfurls an impressionistic portrait of a human being overflowing with paternal and professional complexities, a portrait structured by mythologized themes of vision, truth, and knowledge amidst the contemporary realities of mass incarceration.
