"(My character) Mrs Weiss is sort of the eyes of the audience, the people who don't know anybody like this in their lives..."Yes it's her job ... But even someone who goes through that every day and sees these horrific things, she hears something that changes her," said the 'Hero' singer The film is based on a novel of the same name by Sapphire.

"I was just glued to this book when I read it in, I guess '98, and it stays with you," she added. The producers are reportedly in talks with studios to find a distributor.
