Abused Authority - Independent Film

by Faith Diggs
(Screenwriter, Director & Producer Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois)

"Abused Authority" written, directed & produced by Faith Diggs is about a ruthless cop who abuses authority from domestic abuse to abusing citizens to framing his partner. He loves only one person in his twisted, demented world, his son, "Giles". "Giles" comes home to find his mother on the floor, knocked down by his father. He rushes to his bike, grabs it and rushes out the door. One evening after "Louvell" argues with the Lieutenant and partner, he leaves in a frenzy, storming to the car and speeding off. His son "Giles" and friend "Buddy" are out on a dirt road riding their bikes. "Louvell" speeds, "Giles" turns to leave, "Louvell" speeds, "Giles" paddles, "Louvell" makes impact with his son. He doesn't recognize him due to him wearing Buddy's helmet concealing his face. "Louvell" gets out, looks around and buries the body. After a few days, apprehension overwhelms him, rushing to his car, he speeds hastily to the grave, begins digging and finds the unthinkable!
