Every second is a lifetime. With the four-pound trigger pull, Jared and Sergei, two youth from vastly different backgrounds become forever linked. From that split second as the hand of the clock hits 8:37, each of their lives veers onto a path that set the seeds of their mutual destruction. 22 years later, Jared is released from prison for the death of Sergei’s father. Deeply regretful, Jared tries to forge ahead into a better life. Sergei, now a professor of mathematics, descends into a guilt-ridden abyss of a revenge-driven obsession. As the psychological drama develops both men must face their demons; where one man might lose his life while the other his sanity.

As a playwright she has given us: The San Family (2013), about a black family who arrives in a segregated sanatorium 1943. Their music is the elixir that soothes souls and brings down barriers; The Mother Club, (2014), about rural black midwives who stop at nothing to save lives; unless you harm their own; I M Possible (2015), living the American dream is real, even for rural black Nova Scotian men. But first a black man has to believe in the impossible; The Green Book (2016), there’s a reason why this is the road not taken by coloureds. Before hitting the open road, “you better check your Green Book.” As an actor Juanita has appeared in more than 30 films and television series including Diggstown season 2, Sex & Violence, Forgive Me, Splinters, Hobo With a Shotgun, Cloudburst and including the Emmy Nominated Homeless to Harvard.
