After some violent racial profiled incidents with police, a counselor enters an interracial relationship and become a cop where she endures everyday issues from insecurity, greed, homophobia, and racism from fellow police officers, as well as from her own daughter.
'Colourblind' by Karinthal T McCray adresses the theme of family. A constantly developing plot of a new nuclear family of different races, whose members face trauma from racial issues. The script also cleverly handles the concept of race and racial discrimination in law enforcement.
What makes this script special is the strength and arc of every main character - and there are multiples main characters, who the writer has sculpted precisely. And these main characters go through immense conflict, causing them to change their natural state, taking the readers by surprise.
In the set up, the writer establishes strong beliefs within the readers, making them hate certain characters strongly. Towards the end, the plot reaches its absolute peak as the falling nuclear family faces yet another heart-wrenching conflict. These strong characters pull the readers to question every belief the writer had established. The writer challenges the readers to look at issues from every perspective, creating strong impact amidst readers... And hopeful, audience who would love to see this story on the big screen.
