This is the first version of a treatment for an approximately 40 minute movie entitled, "The Blue Lady." The art direction and the story itself are significantly different in the final version of the movie, which is on Amazon Instant Video. amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00XN4KJAG/
The Blue Lady is a story is about what happened the night Master died and the relationship between two slaves in 1830 South Carolina, LaLi, Elizabeth, and The Master's wife, their mistress, Missy.
In this treatment THE BLUE LADY is a revisionist tale about slavery from a female point of view about how three people with a blood connection - The Master, The Master's & LaLi's mulatto son, and Blue, the mother of their grandchildren - wound up dead in the space of a night. At least one of the dead, Blue, was murdered. The Blue Lady finally is the story of how guilt was assigned that night without anyone taking responsibility.
