In the words of a Professional Black List Reader: “TIED is an engaging take on the urban gang story, told from the perspective of teenaged sisters. The plot and structure is well thought out, largely because it is wonderfully intertwined with the characters. Despite the violent downward arc of Jess, one can easily identify with her because of the troubled emotional relationships with her mother and her sister, Nova. The gritty south central LA neighborhood feels alive, even the minor characters pop out. The script is nearly production ready, and were it produced, the film would have broad appeal to fans of gritty gang and crime stories, especially young women.”
