The Abominable Crime

The Abominable Crime is the story Simone, a young lesbian single mother who survives a brutal anti-gay shooting and Maurice, Jamaica’s leading human-rights activist, who is outed shortly after filing a lawsuit challenging his country’s anti-sodomy law. Simone must choose between hiding with her daughter in Jamaica in constant fear for their lives or escaping alone to seek safety and asylum abroad. Maurice, meanwhile, escapes to Canada, and then risks everything to return to continue his activism.
