Society: The Struggles of Hatred and Righteous Betrayal is a screenplay that revolves around a young African American woman by the name of Ashlyn Richardson who moves from a black community in
Inglewood, California, in the summer of ’97, the beginning of her senior year in high school, with her parents, Rev. Jeff Richardson and Debbie Richardson, and older brother, Carlton, to the suburban area, Sugarland, Texas.
The Richardson family made this transition because Rev. Richardson had been promoted to be the director of Texas Health and Human Services in his childhood home state in the Southwest region. They reunite with Ashlyn’s
older sister, Vanessa, and her husband, Darnell, and also touch base with her oldest brother, Speedy.
In addition, the Richardson family reconnects with their old hometown church in the heart of Third Ward as their spiritual foundation. However, this physical transition brought about changes in young Ashlyn’s life as she
transforms from a teenager to a full-grown woman. In this transformation, society has exposed and placed obstacles, such as racism, loss of a loved one, early motherhood, betrayal, workplace animosity, and sibling rivalry in
Ashlyn’s life that will either hinder her from or strengthen her to become a successful television executive producer.
