The Courts by Todd Bailey


The Courts by Todd Bailey

When senior Brad McKenzie graduates from a suburban Philadelphia high school he spends one last road trip at his brothers college with his best friend Tim Pfifer. Secrets the two have been concealing from everyone for the past six months come to life when Brad tells his story of how an attacker who raped fellow classmate Kelly Sanchez at The Courts, a run down basketball court under the turnpike bridge where all night parties take place, wound up dead. A coming of age piece which guides us through parallel stories of the McKenzie Brothers and spans over two years of struggle and eventual failure. We cross the mainland United States with Brad leaving everything behind to make it in Hollywood, California as an actor or musician. He is left with nothing except the love of his family and the harshest of realities. For full synopsis go to:
