Tamson Robard is a little girl lost in the body of a woman, drowning in
the underbelly of society. Addicted to drugs, alcohol and abusive men,
she is on a crash-course to total self-destruction.
A woman in her early 30s, she’s lived an entire lifetime already, moved
from town to town, state to state with her mother, Connie, who has
taught her child well the ways of complete failure. Tamson was the
product of love too young to handle, and has been fed a steady diet of
lies her entire life.
Now, a dancer at a sleazy strip club, Tamson is destined for trouble and
physical pain at the hands of her boyfriend, Shawn, who routinely beats
her when she doesn’t get him his “candy”.
In the early morning hours of a winter night, Fate intervenes.
Erin Riggs couldn’t be anymore straight-laced and flat out… boring, if
she tried. She grew up in a loving home in Pueblo, Colorado, never
leaving the state, and barely wandering from her hometown, until
circumstances she’d rather forget, lead her to move to the Mile High
City of Denver.
Happy, go-lucky, and looking forward to starting her brand new job at a
local law firm, Erin’s life is finally back on track. Then there’s a
knock on her door and a scream in the night at three in the morning.
Erin is shocked to see a woman on her doorstep, battered and bruised,
and asking for help.
Two worlds collide that night, two women as different as night and day,
yet both sharing a simple need- to discover who they truly are.
Erin will help Tamson sift through the remnants of her tattered life,
mending the pieces together to form a tapestry of truth and fill in the
blanks of a secret long dead, but not buried. Tamson will show Erin that
she can live and pursue dreams she never thought were meant for her.
Shadow Box is a riveting story about two dynamic women who are
both healing from the hurts of life and love. Through their friendship
they can help each other begin anew.
This film is The Accused meets Fried Green Tomatoes, with
characters just as exciting that you’ll want to both cry and cheer for.
Their story is one of humanity and humility, that we can all relate to
and understand as life deals its blows, but in the end, strength
prevails in victory over the darkest depths of despair.
