Pledges is a screenplay about a high-flying Atlanta couple whose glittering, perfect lives are thrown into turmoil when their son is killed while pledging his father’s fraternity.
Rance Lawton, a blue-chip attorney who is mulling a run for mayor, had strongly urged their son not to pledge his beloved Beta Tau Beta – much to his wife’s astonishment. Chloe Lawton, a beautiful socialite who adores the life she’s built for herself, is an orphan who spends much of her time searching for clues about her family.
As the police dig into their son’s killing, long-buried secrets from both their lives will imperil everything they’ve built for themselves – and threaten their very lives.
