A collaboration with Monet Hurst-Mendoza
Tryell Johnson sits on Death Row for the double-murder of two undercover detectives. Mara Hernandez is a fresh-faced corrections officer, newly appointed to the night watch. Together, this unlikely pair, form an intense bond and make a pact to have a baby. Grappling with the power of identity, legacy, and sexuality in a maximum security prison, Blind Crest compels us to ask, “what is the value of a human life, and at what cost are we willing to fight for it?”
