1934. LaVonda, Ruby and Camille convene a meeting of the Harlem Ladies’ Knittin’ and Bitchin’ Society.
Their bitch is about their common ex-lover, Julian Saint James. He’s a peacock of a man. He’s also a candidate to Congress from Harlem. They say that he was a no good despicable so and so to them and didn’t pay the price.
They trick Julian into coming to a Church, blackmail him to stay and begin The Trial Of Julian Saint James.
If he’s found guilty he’ll have to confess his sins, an action certain scuttle his political dreams.
LaVonda charges him with dipping his wick where he shouldn’t. Ruby charges him with taking a five-finger discount of her life savings and Camille charges him with thumping her ex-husband.
But Julian declares this to be a bogus trial and demands to present a defense before he’s “crucified”.
As the damning evidence piles up we also learn about the “inner trials” of his three accusers and how they were motivated to face their demons and become whole and strong enough to force Julian to suffer for his reprehensible deeds.
Will Julian be found guilty? The jury is out on this… until the verdict comes in.
