Prejudice in Love
A loving relationship can be defined as two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other. But what if ignorance and alienation become a dominant force within and external prejudice becomes a barrier? Cis, a beautiful, coloured twenty-eight-year-old fashion writer, and Andy, a twenty-eight-year-old Scottish businessman, have been together since university days and married for two years. Both are inexperienced lovers, too busy to care, and are sleepwalking their way to divorce over the desire for a child. Whilst escaping a storm, Cis has a chance meeting with a much older and significantly more experienced professional man, Paul. Whilst sheltering her from the storm, Paul realises her dilemma and starts to educate her in the skills and delights that she so needs for a successful marriage. She wants more, including giving her his child, much against his better judgment as he has a painful history regarding wives and children. Then she wants Paul as well in spite of the clear prejudice that such a relationship would foster for both of them in society. And she will go to any length to keep him. This is a story of prejudice, generational value differences, and want over need, regardless of the consequences, in a culture of 'I want it all, and I want it now'.
