COLE (2008) Dramatic Feature Film
Cole is a talented young writer with dreams too big for his small town. When he gets the opportunity to bring his talents to the city, he sees his potential for the first time, and spends increasing amounts of time away from home, falling in love with Serafina, a beautiful black girl from a privileged background with secrets of her own. Shackled to his family by responsibility, Cole finds it increasingly hard to lead a double life and is forced to choose or do the unthinkable: unite his two worlds.
