Musket and the Rat
Hollywood, CA , 90028
Musket Cherry is a young woman who lives in a gritty, rugged, ungentrified neighborhood in Chicago. Her mom is a deadbeat alcoholic. Musket’s anchors are her beloved brother Weso, her best friend Gay Stevie, and her boyfriend Billy. Times are tough. Musket supports her family by selling heroin and comforts herself with lots of weed.
Bad things happen. Weso is arrested on a trumped-up charge and beaten in jail. Billy is jumped and robbed. Musket decides to set things right by arming herself. In a world where justice does not exist, maybe those who wrong her will understand her gun.
Can Musket prevail over the forces arrayed against her?
Written by Sammy Horowitz. Directed by Simon Lees. Presented by Dull Boy Productions.
