Inspired by interviews conducted across an ethnically and economically diverse cross-section of New York City, 'Trapper' confronts the modernized meme of female hysteria.

In the office of Trapper, it won’t be long before such prime tabloid fodder is sniffed out and Jillian will be faced with some painful choices.
