A successful investment banker, James Ogilvy’s only interest is landing the next big deal. While in Jamaica to settle his late father’s affairs, James’s main focus is making a large profit as he sells off his father’s assets – including the estate his housekeeper, Sherl and her daughter, Lecia live in. When Lecia is kidnapped, James learns of his father’s investigation into the island’s sex-trafficking trade and how his own greedy pursuits aided in Lecia’s abduction.

Treads: Male, Principal. (early 30’s) (Black Caribbean-Jamaican). Street smart, and slick, but not jaded by life’s adversities, still has faith in the goodness life has to offer. Must be able to do a Jamaican accent (or Jamaican dialect).
