What happens in Vegas…
Three Corners of Deception follows Dr. Meleeka Cary-Ghosh through the most tumultuous events of her life. Dr. Cary-Ghosh is a law professor looking for an escape from the doldrums of daily life. She decides to take a Memorial Day weekend trip to Las Vegas, and there her life changes forever.
Dr. Cary-Ghosh meets a young attorney on her trip, and the two fall in love. The two rush into marriage, but soon what seems like love at first sight reveals itself to be something much more sinister. In a whirlwind, the couple finds themselves standing in a courtroom as layer after layer of calculated deception unwinds. Love may just be Dr. Cary-Ghosh’s undoing.
Meleeka Clary has worked in the film industry for years, but Three Corners of Deception marks her first time creating a feature-length film that’s entirely her own. She previously starred in the TV miniseries Willpower. She also stars in the upcoming film A Coat of Arms. For Three Corners of Deception, Cary will be working behind the camera in addition to starring in the film’s lead role.
Alongside Clary, Three Corners of Deception stars Debra Danielsen, Randy Bruce, Kristin Szczerbik, Shaun Diggs, Benz Veal, Banza Pandora J. Townsend, Leslie Root, and Aprille Park. The film shot back in the summer of 2019. Since then, the cast & crew have worked tirelessly over the past two years to plan, shoot, and produce the film.
Three Corners of Deception will have its official premiere this August, but it has already garnered early recognition & appreciation. The film was screened at the Toronto Women Film Festival, which aims to promote the works of female directors. There it won the festival’s Best Human Rights award for its exploration of human relationships forced into legal frameworks.
