GENRE: Drama

His will to live having been destroyed by the brutality and banality of his profession, an attorney at the end of his rope encounters an other-worldly woman who renews his struggle to live, to love and to savor beauty.


A deposition in a small business dispute between two dentists is lawyer Solomon Burke's undoing. There is 'no exit' from the tiny conference room in which the proceedings are held, as the witness he is questioning and the witness's attorney seek to evade every question, while humiliating Solomon every step of the way. Solomon snaps, undergoing a spiritual and/or psychiatric meltdown. Alone at home, wounded beyond repair, an angel, Abisha appears before him, and tries to restore Solomon to life, only to encounter twists and turns that will transform her as well.


Song of Solomon collides two universes. One is a world of malevolence, pettiness, bitterness and greed. The other is that of beauty, color, flavor, fragrance, sensuality, sexuality and mysticism. Perhaps there is a common denominator to these opposing spheres – our capacity for laughter and comedy (even when tragic), which helps us in our struggle to survive the first, while easing us through the ambiguities and pathos that exist even in the second.
