Elegy Written on a Crowded Street

A young black woman, Mary Anderson, is faced with second-degree murder charges for killing her boyfriend in self-defence. He was a police informant in the Fillmore district - the Harlem of the West Coast. April Jones owns Universal Jail, a bail bond agency whose motto is 'Your Freedom is Our Job'. April gets Mary out of jail - but that's when her troubles with the police truly begin. Peter Plate drives a poetic narrative of gentrification, conscience, good clothes and bad cops in a world where there is only one choice - life, or the everlasting proximity of death.
