A Gripping Drama During A Difficult Time In Our History…

 

Terminus tells the story of Eller, a white matriarch, and her mixed-race grandson, Jaybo, who live together in a ramshackle house down by the railroad tracks in rural Georgia. Their unique love has seen them through, but when Eller’s mind begins to fade with dementia, her violent past in the segregated South haunts her from the very walls of the old family home. As she descends terrifyingly closer toward a horrifying truth, Jaybo’s capacity to love his grandmother is put to the test.

“Terminus is a story about having to reckon with what we have become. A reckoning, in one sense of the word, is the settlement of a bill or account. A reckoning is an interaction that is both relational and transactional. The refusal to reckon with the past has the capacity to manifest in more visceral ways, ways that cause physical and psychic (rather than monetary) imbalances.”
