Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Attorney Skyler Grace has lived a life full of tragedy that cumulates in her law firm defending a serial rapist with Tourette’s Syndrome named Gabriel Usher; a man she knows is guilty. Gabriel Usher is unrepentant and Skyler Grace brutalizes the rape victim Rachel Barcum at the trial to earn her guilty client an acquittal. Gabriel Usher is disgusted by Skyler Grace’s supposed ethical dilemma and he vows to teach her a lesson: he rapes the very lawyer that had just freed him from a long prison term.

Skyler Grace uses her rape to totally surrender her tragic life to Gabriel Usher and incredibly agrees to marry him. They begin to live together in a life of total denial and dysfunction.

Skyler Grace slices her wrist in her bathtub in a suicide attempt after she finds her fiancée and former client is now an Internet predator who seduces young boys and girls for perverted photos and videos.

As Skyler Grace slowly bleeds to death, she finds herself at a long, dark tunnel and feels a familiar Presence with her. This mysterious but familiar Presence takes her back to the most significant events that have shaped her life. This familiar entity tells her that she must look at all of her choices from her tragic life to fully understand and complete her suicide.

At the final moment, Skyler Grace still has one more choice to make: she must choose either Life or Death.
