Earth And Sky
Director: jef brown
Synopsis: Earth and Sky is about would-be poet and part-time librarian Sara McKeon, whose lover of ten weeks, David Ames, is found dead one hot August morning in the city of Chicago. It appears that David may have been involved in illicit activities, including kidnapping, rape and murder. Sara begins her own investigation of the crime, and is led deeper and deeper through the urban labyrinth into the contemporary underworld. As the detective story moves forward in time, scenes from the love affair take us back to the moment when Sara and David first met. The plots converge, and Sara finds herself face to face with David’s murderer.
