Written by Grant and co-star Lanett Tachel, the film had its World Premiere at the 2016 American Black Film Festival and played at limited theaters this past May before hitting DVD/VOD release on May 23.
The story centers on Guy, a well-liked parole officer, and Sasha, a beautiful former model (Shireen Crutchfield), who enjoy a successful marriage until she gets the itch to go back to work. As the wife forms a friendship with an emerging photographer, the husband is dealing with a parolee who proves to be more than he bargained for.
As loose ends unravel and a world of secrets, sex, and lies creep closer to home, Illicit poses the simple question: “Can you have everything without losing it all?”
