GENRE: Historical, Drama

A young African American woman, indelibly changed by her time serving as a triage nurse in Vietnam returns home to find her world and the people in it, unrecognizable.


Reflections follows Sherie Watkins in 1969 as

she returns to a Detroit beaten down by race

relations simmering under its surface. We will

see Sherie walk the line between returning

soldier and black woman. A vessel of her

parents’ hopes and dreams and steward of

her own. Mentally strong and capable, yet

fragile. She's a cypher for all of society’s

assumptions about who deserves what. It’s a

constant struggle that she doesn’t always

win. Sherie and each main character -her

parents, Russell and Deborah Watkins, her

fiancé, Franklin and his mother Phyllis

Winthrop along with her potential lover, Lee

Washington will often be beaten back by the

world outside their doors.
