Casting "Sacrificing Simone." Synopsis: "What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and in this case, lose his first born. In 'Sacrificing Simone,' Lincoln and Natalie Turner have it all, a mini-mansion, a burgeoning law practice, and three healthy beautiful children. Their accomplishments are a combination of education, hard work, and to their shame and embarrassment, the sacrifice of their daughter, Simone. As struggling, young African-American college students, Lincoln and Natalie's plans are derailed when Natalie discovers she's with child. Desperate to live a life of wealth and prestige, the couple does the unthinkable. Fast forward three decades and the emotional and spiritual ramifications of their decision continue to haunt them.
