THE PISTILS

by kathryn machi

Logline

A young, passionate, sexually traumatized Cherokee woman pursues performance poetry while a serial killer pursues her.

Synopsis

Recovering from the recent loss of her father, and the college sexual violation that followed, Ayda “Thunder” Bell joins The Pistils, her sister’s hip hop/jazz trio, as a socially conscious rapper. As Ayda begins to heal and to own her self-worth, she argues with a young preacher who is attracted to her but condemns her very personal views on abortion. And she gives her trust to Viper, the troubled saxophonist whose violent paintings upset — and inspire — her. Meanwhile, the Tulsa newspapers cover a story about a local murdered and missing Indigenous woman. Will Ayda’s outspoken bisexual sister, Luna, be next?
